Ageism is a real, hidden, ignored, insidious, and exponentially growing problem. It is not limited to baby boomers. In most companies, this costly generational communication gap is not being adequately addressed. It affects everyone and is bad for business, culture, and morale. What can business leaders do differently to make sure their organization is not ageist?
Fred Coon, CEO of Stewart, Cooper & Coon, interviews Patti Temple Rocks, author of an Amazon best-selling book, “I’m Not Done“, to discuss this growing issue for the American workforce and those that manage them. (Scroll down for Podcast audio.)
