    • Abstract:
      This article presents information related to the designing of offices to make them more accommodating for the retirees who aren't retiring. Americans aren't necessarily working toward that day when they can relax on the porch and rock in a chair through the golden years. Employers and designers need to accept and accommodate the changing needs of aging office athletes, especially if they want to retain their older, skilled workforce. Older employees are also less used to the open plan with its sea of wall-less cubicles. The older the employee, the less tolerant he'll be to loud noises, so specifying cubicles that are sound absorbent and can reduce echoes and reverberation could greatly enhance an employee's comfort level.
