The transversal skills you mention are often skills that older workers have in abundance based on their work and life experience. Finding ways to encourage this group of workers to stay in the labour market is a win win both for employers and employees. It would be interesting to see how other language in job adverts that may put off older workers from applying like: 'high energy', 'dynamic' and in so doing prevent companies from accessing the skills they need.
