Baby Boomers (aged 51–70) are seen as loyal, skilled and knowledgeable members of the workforce – but they aren’t viewed by their colleagues and managers as the ‘organisational stars’ of the future, and they are perceived as having little potential for further progression or development in their organisations.
While Baby Boomer managers are largely respected and valued in their organisations, there are still common misconceptions concerning skills and attributes. Dispelling these generational myths is an important first step to capitalising on and developing older talent.
