A new study has revealed that hiring older workers might actually be good for a company.


According to the study, older staff not only serve as mentors to younger staff, but they also don't call in sick as much and have a great track record for showing up for work on time, the Huffington Post reported.

The study, which was conducted by the Nationwide building society, found that older workers are just as technologically savvy as their younger counterparts.

The research has revealed that younger workers like having older staff around, and around 16 percent of Nationwide's 17,000 employees are over 50, and two percent are 60 or older.

The study found that almost half of their workers over the age of 55 hadn't taken a sick day in the past year, and most of them usually arrived early to work.
