Career-Op: Your elders

Career-Op: Your elders

by Douglas E. Welch, ComputorEdge Magazine
While a recent lawsuit against Google may have brought the news to the forefront, age discrimination in the workplace is one of the more troublesome issues facing high-tech careerists today. Much like television, advertising and film, high-tech companies have begun worshipping at the altar of youth, both in the focus of their business and the makeup of their staff. While young staffers certainly bring interesting thoughts to the table, the older members of your staff have an important role to play, too. Without them, you might doom your younger staffers to a reputation of past failures instead of using your “elders” experience to lead your company to new heights of innovation.
