QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Age And Adaptability
Posted by Heidi Schwartz
This week’s question comes from the Workplace Evolutionaries group on LinkedIn.
Does anyone have any data/studies that measure the impact of employee age on how well different groups adapt to new work environments (open offices, hoteling, activity based work)? Intuitively, I would think Gen Y would adapt better than Boomers, but I haven’t found anything to support that. The one study I found suggested there was no link between age and resistance, but there was one based on tenure.
