Many corporations are biased toward younger employees, and neglect the fact that knowledge and expertise tend to be exercised more consistently among seasoned workers. This idea is the foundation of Working Longer, which shows corporate managers how to coach and retain their most valuable and experienced staff members. Rothwell (Penn State U.), Spokus (Penn State U.), Reaser (National Older Worker Career Center) and Stearns (U. of Akron) discuss such topics as Human Resource concerns toward older workers, and how to motivate older employees to continue with training and apprentice programs to adapt to changing technologies. A chapter is also devoted to recruiting qualified personnel from the retiree base. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
