What do Coca-Cola, McDonald’s and Workday all have in common? They were all started by entrepreneurs who were more than 50 years old. In fact, 25% of new businesses are now founded by people over 50. With people staying in the workforce longer, 50 is young.
On this episode, Donna Korren discusses why the 50+ age group are the biggest workplace disruptors and how you can harness their wisdom and enable employees of all ages to thrive in an intergenerational workplace?
Hint: Two-way mentoring really helps.
