Survey: Older Workers Least Likely To Share Career Goals with Employers

Most employees are not candid with their manager about their career aspirations, according to a nationwide survey of employed Americans by BlessingWhite, and the older a worker is, the more likely that the worker will not be candid. While reporting that 56% of employees seldom or never share their career plans with their employer, BlessignWhile found that:
The strongest predictor of career reticence is age. The older the employee is, the less likely the individual is to share career plans. Seventy-four percent of respondents aged 65+ are seldom or never candid about their career plans. This compares to 65% for those 55-64, 61% for those 45-54, 58% for those 35-44, and 45% for those 18-34.
