ABSTRACT
The article presents the views of 100-year-old personnel director Phyllis Self on employment beyond retirement age in Great Britain. Self said older workers have lots of experience which gives them a much wider outlook on things. She adds that she enjoys coming to work because it keeps her brain active, and for the constant communication with other people. Official figures show that 1.3 million people over state pension age are still working.
