Age differences in job loss, job search, and reemployment /

by Johnson, Richard | Urban Institute | Mommaerts, Corina.

Publisher: Washington, DC Urban Institute 2011Description: PDF.Other title: The program on retirement policy. Discussion paper ; no. 11-01.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2011 Bibliography pp. 29-33 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Working longer is often hailed as the best way to increase retirement incomes, yet this strategy depends crucially on seniors' ability to find work and hold on to their jobs. This study examines how the incidence and consequences of job displacement vary by age. Results show that older workers are less likely than younger workers to lose their jobs, but only because they generally have spent more time with their employers. When older workers lose their jobs, it takes them longer than their younger counterparts to become reemployed, and when they do find work they generally experience sharp wage declines.Availability: (1)

Age discrimination in the labour market : experiences and perceptions of mature age Australians /

by Adair, Tim | National Seniors Australia Productive Ageing Centre | Temple, Jeromey | Ortega, Lea | Williams, Ruth.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. National Seniors Australia Productive Ageing Centre 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2013 Includes bibliographic references pp. 21-22 and appendicesSummary: There are numerous social and economic benefits to mature age people remaining in employment for as long as they are willing to continue working. One persistent barrier to mature age employment is age discrimination. Despite the skills, experience and mentoring abilities that mature age people can bring to workplaces, age discrimination unfortunately remains an obstacle to many senior Australians being able to work. Age discrimination can be direct - such as a person being told they are too old for a job - or can present in far more subtle ways.Availability: (1)

by Petersen, Maree.

Publisher: BrisbaneCOTA Over 50s - Council on the Ageing 2009Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://cotaover50s.org.au/e107_files/COTA_documents/ageism.pdf' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:32:56 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success response Retirement & ageingSummary: This study draws attention to ageist stereotypes and assumptions of older people held by professionals involved in the policy, design and planning of the built environment, in particular residential complexes. Data was collected as part of a larger study concerned with the growth in specialised spaces for older people segregated from the community. The first stage of the study explored the views and experiences of professionals through interviews and working documents. Analysis revealed policy and practice was underpinned by ageist assumptions. These findings provide evidence of the pervasive nature of ageism in our society and how it is inextricably linked to purpose built housing for older people. Indeed the built environment can be seen to be both as a cause and effect of ageism.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Coming of age /

by Bazalgette, Louise | DEMOS | Holden, John | Tew, Philip.

Publisher: London, U.K. DEMOS 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2011 Bibliography pp. 187-203Summary: Britain's ageing population is often described as a demographic time-bomb. As a society we often view ageing as a 'problem' which must be 'managed' - how to cope with the pressure on national health services of growing numbers of older people, the cost of sustaining them with pensions and social care, and the effect on families and housing needs. But ageing is not a policy problem to be solved. Instead it is a normal part of life, which varies according to personal characteristics, experience and outlook, and for many people growing older can be a very positive experience. Drawing on the Mass Observation project, one of the longest-running longitudinal life-writing projects anywhere in the world, Coming of Age grounds public policy in people's real, lived experiences of ageing.Availability: (1)

Managing the older worker : how to prepare for the new organizational order /

by Cappelli, Peter | Novelli, Bill.

Publisher: Boston, MA Harvard Business Review Press 2010Description: xx, 208 p. : ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Your organisation needs older workers more than ever: They transfer knowledge between generations, transmit your company's values to new hires, make excellent mentors for younger employees, and provide a "just in time" workforce for special projects. Yet more of these workers are reporting to people younger than they are. This presents unfamiliar challenges that--if ignored--can prevent you from attracting, retaining, and engaging older employees. In Managing the Older Worker, Peter Cappelli and William Novelli explain how companies and younger managers can maximize the value provided by older workers. The key? Recognize that boomers' needs differ from younger generations - and adapt your management practices accordingly. For instance: Lead with mission: As employees age, they become more altruistic. Emphasize the positive impact of older workers' efforts on the world around them. Forge social connections: Many older employees keep working to maintain social relationships. Offer tasks that require interaction with others.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
