The Advantages of Experience

With our society’s current reverence for all things new and technical, individuals in the workplace sometimes lose sight of the benefits often gained by seasoned veterans in their jobs.

A recent article in the Globe and Mail highlights some of the advantages including the benefit of composure during critical moments – you can’t learn it from books, you have to have gone through the intensity, confusion and hysteria of events.

One investment firm manager says “I’ve been through the end of the world a number of times”. Other mature workers explain that experience has given them the ability to pull back and get away from the day-to-day “noise” of the workplace in order to keep perspective.
