New Zealand: EEO Trust Launches Survey of Older Workers

New Zealand's Equal Employment Opportunities Trust has launched an on-line survey on how age affects people's experiences at work. Among other things, the survey includes questions about inter-generational conflict, age discrimination, and older people's experiences and preferences at work. According to EEO Trust Chief Executive Dr Philippa Reed, "Older workers are a growing proportion of the labour force so employers looking for the very best people need to know how to create workplaces which suit them."
