The Most Enjoyable Jobs for Older Workers

Older workers who are age 50 to 65 are a lot like millennials when it comes to jobs, says Becky Frankiewicz, president of staffing firm ManpowerGroup North America. “Millennials are just boomers 30 years ago,” she says.

When it comes to flexible work arrangements such as gig employment or freelancing , 92% of younger people between ages 18 and 24 are open to pursuing these types of jobs while 95% of boomers say the same. That’s according to ManpowerGroup’s 2017 #GigResponsibly: The Rise of NextGen Work report which surveyed 9,500 workers worldwide. What’s more, both groups have similar motivations when it comes to work: They want to be paid well and balance their work and home lives. Another study from BMO Wealth Management in 2018 found 59% of self-employed boomers say they voluntarily choose to be their own boss.

Michael Gretczko, a principal with Deloitte Consulting LLP, says his firm’s research shows workers of all ages have similar priorities. They want meaningful work in a positive environment with leadership they trust. However, older workers in particular want jobs that are flexible and offer a sense of purpose.

There is no job and no one moving anywhere.

There is only a scammer trying to steal your hard-earned money.

The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses


My radar is going nuts here.

I'm guessing the check will be for a ton more and you'll be sending cash back.
