Integrating Older Adults into Today’s Work Environment
Recent increases in the number of older workers, particularly those aged 75+, has important implications for both workplace design and worker training programs, especially in the context of rapidly-evolving technology. Technology is reshaping work processes, the content of jobs, where work is performed, communication strategies, and the delivery of education and training. This workshop is intended to provide an overview of these intersecting trends. Topics include: the changing work landscape; characteristics of older adults relevant to job design, training programs and work environments; older workers and work performance; skill acquisition and training; and issues surrounding technology adoption.
