Ageism in the Workplace: Does Your Age Really Matter?

This video is about me staking a claim for the “silent ism” that persists in our workplaces and personal lives today. Do you consider yourself too old or too young? Do we look at some people and see them as past their sell-by date? Do we look at others and think they are too young to be of value, demanding they have experience, when – if we don’t give them a job – they can’t get the very experience we want them to have? Instead of such perceptions, wouldn’t it be great if we could get people of different ages to work together, live together and achieve together. Putting older and younger workers together achieves the dream team; the energy and enthusiasm and quick-to-learn response of youth, combined with the more emotionally intelligent, experienced and strategic thinking of age. What’s not to like?

My thanks to my Manager, QJ, for badgering me to share my take on that silent ism. My thanks also to Sylvia Baldock, Barnaby Wynter, Ian Jarvis, Cat Kipling and the PSA, without whom, this subject would never be aired.

My thanks also to the Brunswick Group and their 2017 research “The Generations Issue”. https://www.brunswickgroup.com/brunswick-review-issue-11-i2852/

And my thanks finally to Strauss and Howe “Millennials Rising: The next generation” https://www.amazon.co.uk/Millennials-Rising-Next-Great-Generation-ebook/dp/B001QA4S06/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1551184836&sr=1-2&refinements=p_27%3AWilliam+Strauss%3BNeil+Howe
