Title: Age Diversity in High Technology
Could 55 be the new 40 in China? This presentation looks at age diversity within global aerospace firms such as Boeing and Airbus and discusses their age management strategy within the national context. Early research on older workforce tends to focus on the negative ramifications associated with ageing, but recent research highlights the relationship between ageing and work outcome is not straight forward. We will explore the intergenerational advantages among the high technology workforce and consider the question whether Chinese aerospace professionals are too young to retire.
