Manager’s age plays an important role in discrimination against older workers

Noemi Nagy

Older workers are judged more positively by managers of similar age, according to a recent study from Italy. The age of an HR manager influences his/her attitudes towards older and younger workers. In the beforementioned study, HR managers judged workers close to their own age more favorably than other employees.
