Aging workers challenge existing conventions regarding the employee-employer relationship. The demographic changes many countries face, particularly in the developed world, are translating into changes for both employees and their employers. These new circumstances demand a fresh perspective on appropriate leadership and behaviors to manage employees, the human resource practices used to motivate and retain talent, and the expectations employees and employers have of each other. This opening essay provides an overview of these demographic changes and their impact on employees and organizations along with an introduction of our book’s chapters.
