Abstract

The confluence of technological advances, such as automation and artificial intelligence, and the aging of the global workforce necessitate a focus on how to retain and retrain workers of all ages. This talk describes age-related trajectories in abilities and motivation throughout the working lifespan and how these trajectories influence continuous learning and development, job engagement, and performance. A call for future research will describe the importance of a person-centered perspective for examining the future of work.
