Managing age in organisational context: a comparative study of the meaning of age among managers
Prof Cynthia Hardy; Dr Susan Ainsworth; Dr Leanne R Cutcher; Prof Robyn Thomas
Australians are currently being encouraged to work longer to maximise their contribution to the economy but they often report there are organisational barriers to doing so. This study offers a new approach to understanding age focusing on managers and offers a framework of effective strategies for employers in managing age.
