A powerful insight into what is happening to us as individuals and the effect on our society,
This review is from: Career Crunch! (Paperback)
This book contains a well thought out analysis of a very worrying phenomenon that we do need to understand and find a way to address.
The issues are huge. They affect key aspects of Business, Government and our Society in general.
The facts are unavoidable. We live longer and are expected to work for longer to balance the cost of an ever increasing number of pensioners and yet many careers come to an abrupt end when we get into our 40s or 50s. From then on the challenge of managing to maintain an income, let alone a career, becomes increasingly severe!
The author treats the subject with great insight, humour and practical observation.
I hope this book will play a part in changing attitudes and enabling a future in which older people(workers, executives, consultants, call them what you like!) are valued as an integral part of the workforce because of the experience and skills they have to offer.
In the meantime, its a very good read and I highly recommend it!
