Do we need the skills of experienced admin staff?There are benefits to experienced admin staff working longer as their talent and skills areretained.

The country's shrinking population will lead to companies needing the skills of older workers for as long as possible, claimed cognitive neuroscientist and business improvement strategist Dr Lynda Shaw.

She added that in addition, these workers are able to mentor young people when they do come into the workforce.

"So you get much greater communication, a much greater cohesion in the company and therefore the whole company is more productive," the expert remarked.

In addition, Dr Shaw observed that people often "age more healthily by staying in work" as long as they are enjoying their job.

Her comments come after figures from the Office for National Statistics revealed this month that people are working longer than they used to, with the average age of retirement rising to 64.6 years for men and to 62.3 years for women.
