  • A number of different issues of aging affect work organizations. Workers age in the usual sense of biological, psychological, and social aging. Workers age in an organizational sense resulting in a need for training and growth. Updating may prevent or minimize obsolescence. Human factors approaches can support adult and older adult workers through designing or redesigning a work situation in a way sensitive to the physical and cognitive demands of a job. Demands on individual workers can change in middle age and older adulthood as caregiving demands of family members must be balanced with work. © 1994, Sage Publications. All rights reserved.
