“Crystallized Intelligence” + the Older Worker
The Croixstone Consulting team understands the benefits that highly-experienced professionals bring to the workforce. A recently published brief from the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College illustrates how older workers, who are living and working longer than ever before, maintain productivity as they age.
The brief suggests that older workers make up for a decline in “fluid intelligence”—the ability to solve new problems—with “crystallized intelligence,” or the learned knowledge and experience they accumulate over the years.
