Wise heads - Grey hairs

Interesting debate on Radio 4 about how organisations shouldn’t ignore the ‘wisdom and experience’ of older workers. My experience is that most enterprises — public and private — are like the armed forces. It’s best to have young people in the ranks who are not experienced at the vicissitudes of war and will blithely crack-on regardless of the consequences.

Older heads know the risks – and too often know where the bodies are buried. Politicians, potentates and power-players don’t want their kind around.

As they say in banking, the next crisis happens when the last person who remembers the previous crisis retires.
