Experiencing Mid-Career Malaise?

May 29, 2023

Wow, I’ve been looking for this particular report to help make sense of the angst of so many white-collar workers 45 years old and older. Highly recommend you go to this website and download the report.

Here are the highlights:

  • Mid-career workers make up the bulk of the long-term unemployed, even though they perform on the job as well or better than their younger peers.

  • They have to make significant compromises—new industry, reduced pay, part-time work—to generate income (much more so than younger workers).

  • Hiring managers tend to have the following biases toward older workers: reluctant to try new technology, unable to learn new skills, have difficulty working with other generations.

  • While training and workshops have proven to be some of the most effective means for older workers to build their confidence and make progress on their career path, most workers 45+ are not excited about pursuing career training.


For those of you who are geeky like me when it comes to ageism in the workplace and how we unlock the wisdom of older workers in organizations, this was a fascinating read.

Here’s a short interview I did last week with Mona Mourshed, the founding CEO of Generation.org.

Go deeper with a workshop, in person or online.
