Prof. Dr. Piyachat Communicate in the opposite direction

How to unlock how to make us think positively Work is an important factor in life. If one day we have no work to do Or we can’t work, it will greatly affect our lives. Work is one of the chances to have a normal life. Because having income to support yourself Providing for a family is integral to normal life for the vast number of people on this planet.

When talking about the work of the elderly If one day those elderly people do not have work or have any limitations in their work. because it is the belief of people around the world that the elderly cannot work There is not enough potential to work or wages to employ the elderly are higher than the new generation. By 2050, there will be two billion elderly people in the world, and 80 percent of them will be in developing and underdeveloped countries.
Therefore, in these countries there will be a large number of elderly people who have no money to spend. That means the quality of life for the elderly in these countries is not good enough. because there are not enough savings And social structures around the world will put pressure and pressure on these elderly people to not have the opportunity to work. which has a direct impact on the lives of the elderly

In addition, on the Ted Talk stage in Canada, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Piyachat also mentioned that society or some organizations
not paying attention to the elderly I think it has less potential and efficiency. Or sometimes there is an early retirement because they think that the wages of work are expensive. in the opinion of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Piyachat have a regretful experience Knowledge of work that has been accumulated for a long time He thinks that some job characteristics require the experience of these seniors to support the work to go well. Presenting the idea this time to spark a new look that the elderly are more valuable to society than previously thought.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Piyachat views that Senior Employment Technology should be used to transform the elderly.
Come back to work more efficiently without getting stuck. for example
People five and six hundred years ago didn’t have glasses. which is thought to be difficult in work or life When we have glasses, the problem is over. Likewise, if we have technology to help the elderly work, the obstacles will disappear. No one will have the idea that the elderly cannot work.

In the past, we have technology to help the elderly in retirement age or the elderly who are hospitalized.
But we still do not have the technology to support the elderly to return to normal work.
In the past, developed countries have some technology to help the elderly return to work.
But for developing and underdeveloped countries, none of these technologies are available. Therefore, this technology needs attention. by finding ways or creating technology to suit the use of people in that country Inexpensive, easy to access

There are three main obstacles for the elderly to work.

1. physical obstacles such as the body is not conducive to work such as lifting heavy objects In this regard, technology can help. Or some occupations that have to stand for a long time or sit for a long time may need technology that helps the elderly to be more convenient to work. In addition, there are also senior citizens who volunteer in social work by bringing their experiences. knowledge to share which is considered valuable to society

2. Obstacles in traveling to work for the elderly The journey may take a long time or a long walk. or that the car is stuck for a long time They are all obstacles for the elderly. Why don’t we think about the myriad of jobs that can be done from home without the hassle of commuting? As can be seen from the past COVID situation, we can work from home without any interruption. Why can’t we bring those things to adjust the employment of the elderly? There are jobs that can be done from anywhere without the need to come to the office. In the event of COVID, these things have been proven. and adjusting the way of working can help the elderly return to work after retirement, not many of which the Remote Working system
will answer this question

3. Obstacles in the brain and memory which must be admitted Older people are unable to remember new things. Get as many as the new generation Adapting to technology may not be fast. or flexibility in some may be reduced
Why don’t we use technology to help memorize or guide how to use it? Or some jobs use technology to help make some jobs faster. for the elderly to use their skills and experiences in other fields to work

What we lack is a lack of technology suitable for the context of developing countries. which if these things spark many Sectors come together to achieve development in different sectors. To help support the elderly to be able to return to work efficiently and ready, such as software Engineering Engineers collaborate with investors. And believes that the development in this section will have a market to support. and the market will keep getting bigger and bigger Older people who want to work may be a matter of finances. Or some may be a matter of self-worth.

In the future, the number of elderly people around the world will be enormous. And it can also play a part in driving economic and social work. It is a resource with knowledge and experience that is valuable to the country. increase economic and social productivity and not a burden on the country as we think And it also greatly reduces the financial burden of the country.
