Age Management In The Light Of Neurosciences Development

In: Contemporary Issues and Challenges in Human Resource Management


  • Beata Jamka

    () (Łazarski University, Warsaw)


This article identifies the kea areas of specialized pro-generational human resources management in the light of achievements of neuroscience, dynamically developing since the end of 1990s. More and more often and with more and more precision and certainty, the findings of neurobiology, neuropsychology and other sciences examining the brain show how strongly human decisions and behaviors are conditioned by unconscious brain processes. In particular, attention is paid to the effect of neo-evolutionism, physiology of thinking (thinking fast and slow) and dispelling “neuro-myths” concerning the lateral specialization of the brain and its plasticity. The article deliberately confronts the results of neuroscience studies in the light of sociological characteristics of generations and identifies the main areas of structuring an effective age management system (conclusions for employers and managers).
