Why Are Older Employees Preferred Over Freshers?

There has always been a debate between hiring older employees and freshers. Who should be given preference? This question often lurks in recruiter’s mind. Nowadays, many older employees are coming up for jobs and are proving successful in bagging a new job for themselves.

Older people get chances majorly because Freshers lack in experience. Some older employees switch their jobs and some want to join after a considerable employment gap. There are many older people who are retired from their jobs but are so enthusiastic and innovative, that they still want to work.

On the other hand, many companies sacrifice experience for youth. Talent and experience remain unutilized in this case. There is a considerable ratio of older people who are willing to work but due to age discrimination, their dreams are crashed.

But getting fresh blood on the job seems more idealistic rather than practical. Experience in a particular field counts; not the age. The fact that freshers come with new ideas and innovations is true, but this is also a fact that older employees have experience with them. Many companies specially hire experienced workforce, as they do not want to experiment with the new lot of people. Moreover, a lot of their time is wasted in training freshers, whereas it is opposite in the case of older employees.

Here are some reasons, why older employment seekers are preferred over freshers:

  • They are more experienced than any fresher
  • They can easily adjust in professional environment
  • They don’t need much training
  • They are more loyal and are trust worthy
  • They can understand the company much better.
  • They are more reliable, as the chances of switching over jobs are considerably low.
  • They are highly skilled and strive to work efficiently.
  • They understand their responsibilities well.

So it is evident from the above facts that despite their age, older employees still have hope of working in many companies. What’s more, they can also mentor the younger employees by imparting valuable knowledge that they have acquired along the way.

Top Recruiters in India are now on a Hiring Spree

The global recession took a heavy toll on the global economy and many economies crumbled under the aftermath. India, however isolated from the adverse effects of the global recession, also felt minor tremors of the crisis. The hiring trends across the nations took a beating and pink slips became a common phenomena. Most of the leading companies in the country resorted to strict austerity measures and stringent cost cutting plans. As a result, many skilled and qualified professionals were under paid and overworked.

However, India witnessed quick economy recovery and soon it achieved an enviable GDP growth rate. Owing to this speedy recovery, the top recruiters in the country are now on a hiring spree. As the economy bounced back after the slump, the job market started getting better. The top-notch companies put ambitious expansion plans in place and started hiring skilled professionals to realize their goals. The biggest job churner however, has been the IT and the ITES sector. The BPO sector has provided myriad opportunities to the people and has witnessed tremendous growth in recent times. Hence, the sector has gone on a huge recruitment drive and offering lucrative packages to the clients as well.

Banking sector in India is not far behind, when it comes to recruitment of professionals. Many nationalized and private banks in the country have been conducting written examinations, to hire young talent into their organization. With ambitious expansion plans in place, the recruitment drive is bound to gain pace in the near future. In addition, aviation sector, which was the worst hit sector due the recession and surging oil prices, has also shown signs of redemption and is looking to expand its operations. Moreover, various new sectors have opened up a plethora of opportunities and with growing competition in every field, recruiters have myriad options to choose from.
