Hiring of Older Workers

Can older workers fit in at today’s workplace? Joshua Yim, CEO of ACHIEVE Group, shared his views on the hiring of older workers in Mediacorp Frontline Ep 9. Over the years, Joshua observed that many companies feel older workers are not as driven to excel as younger workers and they often lack IT skills.
