A talented young make any company fast forward without delay & a experienced old make company profitable or analysis it before taking decision.
A good mix of energetic youth alongside experienced workers will not only get the job done, but will also ensure proper competition in today's market.
Who said you had to choose one or the other??
I'd like to mention that a whole lot of older people have far, far, more energy than a whole lot of younger ones. Health problems (even the minor ones) are often the only thing that make someone "older" have less energy, but having little kids does quite a job on younger people's energy too.
When I grow up I want to become a super hero: "Lisa - Destroyer of Blanket Generalizations When It Comes to What People Believe About Other People".
With time everyone will get some kind of experience, but no amount of experiance will ever result in talent; you either have it or you don't!
I agree with a mixture of both. I have noticed though that in job markets now that companies are looking for young. Young will receiver a lower pay than experience. And since the younger are not as experienced, they may tend to be more "yes-men" type to bosses than a seasoned worker.
Not right, but that is the way business is becoming.
By my observation the world uses young for their drive, so from 21 - 28 you work like fury to show yourself to the best, from 28-35 you move into management of some kind and start being of some value, from 35-42 you use their talents and experience and note that this is the prime 'drive time' for them to get ahead, between 42-49 they either become top management or a liability, for a younger worker will be cheaper and less set in their ways.
Over 50 is next to dead in the business world.
Ageism is one of the next things we all need to deal with it when it comes to bias and stereotypes. Young people don't have a clue as to how vibrant, ambitious, or any number of other things someone older often is. Older people too often forget how intelligent and capable young people be can. Everyone (or at least too many people) , as with so many other things, forms conclusions and opinions based on stereotypes and outward appearances. People often underestimate young people because they look to young to know what they're talking about, but then older people are often underestimated because someone equates fine lines with "losing capability" and outdated-ness.
I've seen a lot of 22-year-olds and 55-year-olds who far from "work like fury". A lot of 35-year-olds have lives complicated by having babies and young children. Not all older people care set in their ways, and a whole lot of laid off but brilliant older people would be happy to work for less money as long as it was "reasonable" money.
I think what matters is whether someone has the kinds (and there are different kinds) of intelligence to do the job well. A 60-year-old may not be at the company in 20 years, but most 25-year-olds change companies a whole lot sooner than that too.
Having said that, though, I think (although there are certainly exceptions) that inexperienced youth doesn't belong in any position of running anything when the position is at, say, the highest level positions in a company. Those "rare exceptions" are usually the ones who start their own company and make it thrive. Particularly at high levels in organizations, experience doesn't mean that someone has done something for a long time. It means he's seen how "the big picture" can work in any number of ways.
What about a different point of view, such as a writer..or a poet?...there is enough talent in both the young and the old for everyone to enjoy! We gain wisdom from the old...and new talents from the young...and if they ever get together to collaborate...what a treat for all to enjoy!
