These resource materials are designed to help instructors prepare their business students to work with older employees. The materials can be used in undergraduate and graduate courses in management, organizational behavior, human resource management, business policy, and business and society. The materials include lecture guides, discussion questions, case studies, graphs that can be converted into transparencies, and selected reading lists. The materials are arranged into eight modules: (1) the aging work force; (2) retirement; (3) stereotypes; (4) characteristics of older workers; (5) the law and older workers; (6) managing older workers; (7) recruiting older workers; and (8) age equity in employment. The modules can be used as the basis for class sessions devoted entirely to the topic or in conjunction with other materials for class sessions on topics such as managing diversity, career management, or future management challenges.
