Yet ageism is rife as pressure for jobs increases

Just read an interesting article on People Management Magazine The findings from the study ‘Productivity and Age: Evidence from work teams at the assembly line’ from researchers at Universität Mannheim, in Germany, contradicts the belief that older workers performance and ability levels deteriorate with age. It also adds support to the UK government’s decision to abolish the default retirement age of 65 this October.
