The changing age composition of the workforce is forcing organizations to make a number of adjustments. One is learning how to deal effectively with older workers. The number of age discrimination complaints has increased dramatically.
Organizations must also learn how to deal with younger employees, who have values markedly different from those of their order counterparts. The days of total loyalty and commitment to the company in exchange for guaranteed employment are a thing of the past. Young employees do not have such loyalty values, and organizations in recent years have made it clear that there is no such thing as lifetime employment.
