Helping Older Generations Embrace Technology in the Workplace

Older Generations VS. Technology

Many of our country’s seniors are late adopters when it comes to technology. The Pew Research Center found that in 2012, more than half of older adults, ages 65 or older, were active internet users. Today, 59 percent of seniors report that they use the internet. Despite these gains, seniors continue to lag behind younger Americans when it comes to adopting technology. For example, Pew Research Center found that many seniors remain largely unattached from online and mobile life, with 41 percent not using the internet at all, and 23 percent not using cell phones.  With many people working into their senior years, it is important that they learn to adapt to new technology.
