By Neoli Marcos

Elderly employees are making a comeback as one of the most indispensable assets of the workforce today. Currently, the trend among employers is to favor experience and maturity, which prods ageing employees to retire at a much later time. Senior employees continue to make a big impact in today's work force. It's no wonder then that many employers are now advertising jobs online at and to be able to reinstate and restablish retirees.

Retirees are expressing desire to continue working well past the normal retirement age.

Many 'baby boomers' are turning sixty this year. Many of them are taking advantage of early retirement or looking to make career changes. As a result, industry sectors are experiencing labour shortages and offering job opportunities and online job searches on their websites. Retiring workers often take with them irreplaceable institutional knowledge and experience.

Conversely, understaffed companies don't just see massive job hiring as the only solution. They still turn to older employees and regard them as indispensable to the workforce precisely because of their experience and discipline that comes with it. Which is why they offer promising job opportunities, increase in salary, promotions, added benefits, and other appeals in an effort to make veteran workers stay longer.

The major reasons for working in retirement according to AARP research statistics are:

1.Finance (61%)

2.Want to stay mentally active (54%)

3.Need the health benefits (52%)

4.Wish to stay physically active (49%)

5.Desire to remain productive and useful (47%)

Older workers offer a potentially attractive solution to both short and long-term staffing challenges. Companies who advertise their job listings at and are tapping into this growing pool of talent. They might have to offer more in terms of salary, but at the end fo the day, employees in retirement jobs are well worth the pay.
