Workplace Issues. Symposium 5. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
This document contains three papers from a symposium on workplace issues that was conducted as part of a conference on human resource development (HRD). "Maximizing Opportunities for the Aging Workforce through Workplace Design" (Virginia W. Kupritz), reports on the second phase of study of the office design features needed to provide older workers with the same opportunities as their younger counterparts to perform their jobs efficiently. "Age and the University Workplace: A Case Study of Remaining, Retiring, or Returning Older Workers" (Tonette S. Rocco, David Stein) discusses how trends toward longer working life spans (including remaining in the workforce longer, retiring, and returning to the workforce) are compelling HRD practitioners to include age in diversity discussions and reexamine career development and training and development opportunities for older workers. "Access to Work for College Graduates with Disabilities in the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area" (Oscar A. Aliaga) examines the changes in organizational behavior and the role of HRD that are required to facilitate access to work for college graduates with various disabilities and explains how to implement accommodations as mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act. All three papers contain substantial bibliographies. (MN)
