According to this CNN/Money Magazine article:
- "Corporate America is finally waking up to the extensive experience mature employees bring to the table and placing value on the benefits of retaining older workers."
- "Firms are actively seeking to keep their baby boomer employees, enticing individuals with flex hours, part-time, telecommuting consulting -- exhausting every known resource to accommodate their employees."
- "More corporations are choosing to "rehire" older employees by involving them in mentoring programs, giving them access to coaching, strategy development and research programs.
