I’m thinking of starting a company and have thought about employing only people who are over 50. Why? Simply because I think they have a lot of experience, wisdom and open mindedness to new ideas. They are skillful. They are into technology. They value their time and so are likely to be more productive. The chances are they will be loyal and trustworthy and will be grateful. Importantly, I cannot even start to imagine the knowledge they bring to the company. Who wouldn’t want someone like that.

The plan is to let them choose their hours. If they don’t want to work a whole day, that’s fine. If they want to work a full day, that’s also fine. Perhaps someone could work from 8-11, another could work from 11-2, a third person could work from 2-5.

They will get unlimited holidays, sick leave, and can take unlimited time off to care for a family member.

They will act as coaches and mentors some of the time, and coachees and mentees at other times. Why? Well, there’s always something new to learn. It’ll be a supportive environment.

There is more I could say, but let’s stop here for now.

Does anyone have a problem with the ‘age limit’?
