Older workers need to stop believing stereotypes about themselves (and so do their employers)
online resourceposted on 2017-03-03, 11:55 authored by Stanimira Taneva, John Arnold
Age discrimination is considered the most widely experienced form of discrimination across Europe. In a work context, this can be particularly harmful. Although older workers are sometimes stereotyped in positive ways — as more loyal, reliable, or committed compared to their younger colleagues – negative stereotypes abound. We explore this topic further and argue about the wide-spread misconceptions of age-related negative stereotypes.
