Why should Elders work?

“Our body and mind start deteriorating as we grow older. It is good to start working so that we stay active. I manage to sell insurace to contacts I have built up through the years and it brings me a decent income while still letting me stay active,” says Mr. Shyam, who has been a star insurance agent after securing a job through Nightingales Jobs 60+.

Mr. Shyam represents the new-age senior citizen who, instead of fading away at home, is using retirement to make new beginnings.

According to the a survey done by a leading employment website, there is a sustained year-on-year incremental growth in the number of retirees entering re-employment.

Many Seniors are also financially unstable and desperately in need of an income in the absence of a support system.

Why should you hire a Senior Citizen?

Mr. Mahendar, partner at Hatti Kaapi, which has hired 22 senior citizens across its 55 outlets in Bengaluru says this about hiring Elders - “The integrity, humility and discipline they bring to the job is excellent,” he said, explaining that seniors who are usually appointed cashiers, front-office staff or accountants often learn how to make coffee, serve food and do housekeeping jobs.

Seniors are a great resource of various skills, rich experience and ripe wisdom. They are also cost effective. Employers will definitely benefit by employing Senior Citizens.
