Supporting an Aging Workforce – Donald Truxillo & Gemma McCarthy

Abstract: In response to the ageing Western workforce, there has been a growth in research on how to support aging workers’ wellbeing, performance, and engagement. As such, there has been an increased interest in work ability or one's ability to continue to meet one’s job demands. Originally developed in the occupational medicine literature, the work ability concept is gaining attention in the organisational sciences due to its association with work outcomes such as future disability status, burnout, satisfaction, turnover, and retirement. In this seminar, we will share some of our past and ongoing research on work ability, its measurement, and implications for an aging workforce.

All are warmly welcome, further information on the KBS Spring series can be found at
