HOW TO…ensure talent management isn't ageist

Robinson, Craig
November 2007
People Management;11/29/2007, Vol. 13 Issue 24, p40
The article offers tips for companies on talent management practices. The author says companies should conduct an objective assessment of skills and capabilities to ensure all employees are considered. They should also ensure that staff recognise the importance of bringing stability and guidance to companies in transition. Just as it is detrimental to evaluate a worker according to their age, it is also a mistake to treat all workers as a single, indistinct mass, the author adds.
