Author(s): Kedsuda Petchdee

 The objectives of this study are to investigate approaches to enhancing the potential of elderly workers in the workplace and to examine the relationship between the working needs of the elderly and their status. The researchers collected data from 222 elderly workers in Thailand and analyzed the statistical data using the SPSS program with a significance level of 0.05. The study indicated a high level of opinion on maximizing the potential of elderly workers in general. The analysis revealed that the relationship between the elderly's need for work and personal status discovered that the relationship is dependent on personal status and age, rather than personal status, gender, or educational level, with statistical significance at the 0.05 level of three items. Furthermore, the relationship between work demands based on personal status and marital status was statistically significant at the 0.05 level for the two items. And the comparison result of enhancing the potential of elderly workers in the workplace classified by personal status discovered that gender, age, and level of education had a statistically significant difference at the 0.05 level. However, there was no statistically significant difference in marital status at the 0.05 level.
