Some anecdotal evidence suggests that the oversupply of qualified graduates in high skill industries is adding to the pressures on the experienced well qualified professional, especially those in the 35 – 55 age range. They are relatively expensive, harder to manage, and might just know more than those tasked with managing them.
The 25-35 year-old employee on newer more ‘flexible’ contracts are frankly a cheaper resource. They certainly wont be on high cost legacy pension schemes.
Economic necessity? Short term view? Poor succession planning?
Is there any truth in this notion that there is pressure on experienced hires to go?
I’m looking for case studies or formal evidence.
All comments welcomed.
