"More and more baby boomers are continuing to work longer and longer or in some cases, going back to work. So is it because they have to or because they want to join us to talk about it. Andy challenger with the outplacement firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas, which one is it any? Well, it's probably a little bit of both right. They can work longer. They're healthier and more. Well, educated than past generations might want to because the job market, so good. They're getting good offers right now to to stay in the labor market, and sometimes they have to if you're gonna live longer build up a bigger nest egg before you retire and some of those 4._0._1._K and pension funds. Took a hit in the great recession that started in two thousand and eight. Yeah, they took a big hit and some of them had to help support their children who weren't able to get jobs coming straight out of college during that depressed economy. Yeah. Absolutely. Taking care of them. Maybe helping them through college during that time after school letting them live at home with them and ordering him in that way. It really was an extra financial for the baby boomers and some of them are having to work a little bit longer. Because of that. Here's what I wonder too. Andy is there? Some unique skill sets. That boomers have that maybe the other generations, even Baleno, for example, don't have that employers need. Yeah. Well, they're really experienced and in a tight labor market when companies are growing so fast. It's really valuable to have an veteran workers that know how to perform under pressure solve complex problems and the ability to listen and be empathetic to their coworkers. Is something that older workers tend to really bring to the table. Yeah. Sometimes managing people managing other people keeping the the worst workplace running smoothly. Sometimes it's just a matter of older workers do show up. Absolutely, right. They they have this. They they know how to work, right? That's part of it that grew up at a time when you came in nine to five and today, maybe you can do a little bit more of that work remotely or from your home baby boomers just know how to work hard, and and that's really valuable today's paper firemen, and I'm guessing they know a little bit more about customer service, which is a law started. Many different businesses, especially with young people because they're so used to communicating online or communicating by tax that they don't really know. If don't have the same interpersonal skills boomers, do certainly right. You know, oftentimes a twenty two year old Twenty-three-year-old come into the workforce. They've never had a job before they've been straight through school and straight through college. And you know, at no point in your academic career you ever getting any customer service experience. And so that's part of the reason why in twenty teen. Where it was a a lot of jobs were added to the economy fifty five more than fifty percent of those jobs were taken by people fifty-five years and older. Yeah. But it was kind of a problem when the customer has to show the more mature person at the ethic, not even a cash register anymore at the ipad. How to make the thing work? Finish the check. Lose some productivity when the challenge. Let's put it that. Well, yeah, that is that is the challenge for for for older workers and technology has changed really quickly, and it continues to develop and to stay on top of that is it can be a challenge for all door kind. Andy. Thank you so much for joining us today. Andy challenger will the placement firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas? I will say this about boomers. Sure, I think I think most boomers are a little bit more willing than their parents were to embrace technology and try to learn.
