39 year old billionaire sees value of 50-plus workers

Time magazine’s 2015 Person of the Year  Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, a UCLA dropout, will be hiring more older drivers for his ride-share company.

Uber doesn’t look at age. They look at ones passion for solving a problem.

  • 23 percent of Uber drivers are 50 and older.  Drivers are their  own boss. They turn on and off  work [with a smartphone app]  and  don’t have to ask for permission.  The flexiblity makes it an attractive way to work.
  • Folks over 50 often have extra optimism and passion for their communities and might know the city  better than anybody. That deep knowledge about their city is the cherry on top.
  • Working with older workers allows  younger managers  the opportunity to  tap into older workers expertise and knowledge. The younger manager can capture  the older workers infectious enthusiasm for solving challenges and problems  and passion  about the work and doing it well.
  • Today’s sharing economy starts with convenience, quality and affordability for the person who wants to get around the city. The ability to push a button on your phone for a car to pick you up immediately- the freedom and mobility that gives is remarkable.
  • Uber drivers world-class background checks, a good, clean record and customers  feedback, rating the driver  makes sure only the best drivers stay in the system. Uber has had great feedback from senior-citizen communities.To learn more about how you can participate to earn extra money, go to www.uber.com/aarplr.

    6 ways to help an older worker with a younger boss thrive

    Older workers and younger workers can learn from each other.

    Stifle that urge to do all the talking and regale younger colleagues with tales of the good old days Instead, ask questions, and listen with an open mind. You may be surprised by how much you learn.

    Young people are turned off by any kind of condescension. Instead, offer encouragement. No matter how confident younger colleagues may appear, they’re often riddled with insecurities. Even the most successful appreciate praise. So be generous with your compliments and support.

    Don’t pretend you fit in.
    Pretending that you belong, hoping that your younger colleagues will see you as one of them, will only earn their contempt. Instead, think of yourself as a tourist in the country of the young. Stop in at a club that young people frequent, have a cup of coffee and chat with the crowd milling around. You can learn from the different perspective they have from your.

    Keep up with pop culture.
    Make sure you are tuned in to the present. Know what’s going on in the news, what TV shows or musicians are popular, what websites young people like. Get familiar with the ways that young people communicate — such as by texting and on social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.

    Share your expertise that by virtue of having lived half a century or more, you have gainedt. Within your field, for instance, you have an idea of what has worked and what hasn’t. You know that traumatic events can throw everything into chaos, but that chaos subsides and order returns. Young people don’t know that, and can’t. But don’t lecture them. Instead, talk to them and explain what you know about how the workplace works. Share your perspective in a positive and collaborative way.

    Be willing to help younger people succeed, even when they’re placed in positions above you.

      A bit more about why older workers can be a great asset to a business.
      1. They can see the big picture. Older workers have weathered lots of business ups and downs. They have a long-term perspective and can help the workplace stay calm during difficult times.

      2. They’ve got people skills that boost morale. They know the value of a phone call instead of a text, a face-to-face “good morning” or personal congratulations for a job well done.

      3. They’ve learned how to work. Take advantage of their ability to do the job without supervision. When you let them do their thing, it frees you up for other managerial challenges.

      4. They can make you look good. Recognize that they can help you excel at your job. Treat older employees as the experts they are, and make sure they have what they need to do their job. They’ll appreciate that.

      5. They expect leaders to lead. Show that you’re a confident manager. Older workers will be resentful if they think they are reporting to someone who is hesitant or anxious.

    106 million people over 50 generate economic activity valued at $7.1 trillion…. More and more privte sector entrepreneurs are beginning to see the aging population as a great opportunity. People 50-plus in America comprise a new “longevity economy,” which is larger than the economy of any countrt except China and the U.S. Plus, as people enter extended middle age, they contribute to society socially as well as economically as volunteers, caregivers and grandparents. One of the true benefits of our increased longevity is having a growing number of older adults available to nurture and teach our young people today….from AARP

Your hands are covered with blood.  Isaiah 59:1 Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor His ear too dull to hear.  Jeremiah 11:11 Therefore this is what the LORD says: I am about to bring upon them a disaster that they cannot escape.

They will seize your sons and daughters, and your remnant will be consumed by fire.  Ezekiel 24:13 Because of the indecency of your uncleanness I tried to cleanse you, but you would not be purified from your filthiness.
