Ramifications of employee-aging were researched by measuring six motives of Organizational Climate, ten types of Role Stress, and eight types of Coping Strategy in an Indian public sector industry. The sample was divided on the basis of respondents' functional assignment (R&D, quality, production and miscellaneous - comprising remaining functions). Impact of employee aging was studied across functions through bivariate correlations. The consequences of employee aging in the organization under study are negative for the R&D function but positive for non-R&D functions. Negative manifestation of employee aging can be limited by assigning younger employees to R&D and moving them to non-R&D functions as they grow older.
