ALPIS'11



Demographic shifts in the workforce and the changing nature of work are likely to heighten the salience of age differences in the workplace. Given these changes, it is important to obtain a greater understanding, both theoretically and practically, of the role of age in the workplace and the research that is taking place around the world. Thus, one of the major goals of this small group meeting is to understand the research programs taking place in various countries, and from this to develop a broader research agenda.
The meeting will be organized around the following themes:

  • STEREOTYPES
  • MOTIVATION
  • GENERATIONAL CONFLICT
  • ORGANIZATIONAL AGE CLIMATE AND HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGEMENT
  • CAREER PATTERNS OF OLDER WORKERS
