The ageing workforce and the introduction of anti-age discrimination legislation across much of the world has led to an increased interest in age diversity and the issues inherent in managing an age-diverse workforce. This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the issues in managing an age-diverse workforce. Unique in the multiple approaches that it encompasses, it includes discussions of both older and younger workers, employer and employee perspectives, generational and age diversity and international comparisons. Emma Parry and Shaun Tyson include chapters from renowned authors in the field of age diversity, which use both conceptual argument and empirical research in order to provide insights into this important area, therefore constituting an essential text for academics, students and practitioners with an interest in age diversity.
