Managing the aging workforce:: Status quo and implications for the advancement of theory and practice
AbstractSummary This paper synthesizes and translates secondary and empirical research findings on the aging workforce for the non-specialist reader, adopting a business management perspective that has to date been neglected. We chose two different approaches to review the status quo of this particular topic: First, a literature review of the Financial Times Top 40 publications, and second, a number of selected case examples that we based on our own empirical research, thereby shedding light onto the issue of aging workforce management from a practical and experiential perspective. As a result, the paper presents findings on and conclusions about the most important future implications of the aging workforce for management.
