Facing the Challenges of a Multi-Age Workforce examines the shifting economic, cultural, and technological trends in the modern workplace that are taking place as a result of the aging global workforce. Taking an international perspective, contributors address workforce aging issues around the world, allowing for productive cross-cultural comparisons. Chapters adopt a use-inspired approach, with contributors proposing solutions to real problems faced by organizations, including global teamwork, unemployed youth, job obsolescence and over-qualification, heavy emotional labor and physically demanding jobs, and cross-age perceptions and communication. Additional commentaries from sociologists, gerontologists, economists, and scholars of labor and government round out the volume and demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of this important topic.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This latest addition to the Frontier Series is an important step forward in consolidating what we know about an increasingly age-diverse workplace, and offering guidance about what we need to do to develop applicable, effective organizational strategies and interventions. Finkelstein, Truxillo, Fraccaroli, and Kanfer offer a volume rich in detail, and comprehensive in scope - and one that cuts through much of the generational stereotyping prevalent in the popular press." - Jerry W. Hedge, RTI International, USA

"This innovative, interdisciplinary volume brings together the top scholars in the field to tackle one of the world's most pressing challenges, issues associated with an aging and age-diverse workforce. Taking a global perspective, the volume informs our basic understanding of the issues while also highlighting how that information can best be used. The vision of the editors has resulted in a masterful volume that will be an outstanding resource to researchers and managers in organizations charged with managing a diverse workforce." - Tammy Allen, University of South Florida, USA

"This Frontiers volume brings together a highly regarded cast of authors who do an excellent job of representing both international and interdisciplinary perspectives on the implications of an aging and increasingly age-diverse workforce. I was impressed by the use-inspired approach that the editors adopted in this volume. It has produced an interesting and complementary collection of forward-looking chapters that offer real food for thought to both researchers and practitioners as they consider how to move forward in understanding and addressing these issues." - Janet L. Barnes-Farrell, University of Connecticut, USA
