Flying in the face of recent media reports indicating that mature age workers are being 'forced' to work longer and are therefore disgruntled, one expert has said that older employees want to stay employed, but under flexible working conditions.

    Employers also need to understand the benefits of recruiting from this talent pool. The Human Rights Commission has prepared a great paper on debunking the myths of hiring mature age workers - http://www.hreoc.gov.au/matureworkers/2_myths.html.
