Age-related changes in decision making is a topic that is increasingly becoming an important consideration as we embrace working past traditional retirement age.
Evidence suggests that as we grow older there are cognitive and affective changes in the way we process information. All decisions whether small or large can be disadvantaged or enhanced dependent upon our age.
Many believe that there is a strong correlation between getting older and cognitively slowing down. This, however, is not accurate as it’s by no means the whole story and if we want to make the most of our workforce it is worth collecting all intelligence regarding the strengths and weaknesses of each generation working for us.
