    Abstract

    Age in the workplace has become a hot topic of debate across different countries and sectors. Yet, to date, age has been one of the least researched aspects of diversity at work. Instead, we tend to assume certain ‘facts’ about how age affects people’s ability to work, usually informed by stereotypes about the talents and capabilities of different age groups and generational categories. In this research, we aimed to scrutinise such stereotypes, exploring how they are constructed and their potential effect on experiences of work and employment across different age groups in the UK.
