Age diversity is a key component of diversity management‚ since the current workforce offers a unique generational mix. Organizational leaders face numerous challenges in today’s dynamic workplace that require experiential, technical, and analytical skills that are only achieved with an age-diverse workforce. A combination of life span development theories and perceptions of generational differences presents the challenges faced by HR personnel and organizational leaders in order to manage varying age groups at work. This chapter explores the perceptual, as well as evidenced-based information regarding workplace age diversity and the practical applications for managing an age-diverse workforce.
