This paper explores and discusses a number of factors related to critical issues in ageing. First, it explores age-based discriminatory practices found in labour management policies which are outdated and fail to reflect a range of changing demographics and social trends. Second, the paper examines several contextspecific issues in HR policies that inadequately reflect recent trends in ageing. Several solutions are proposed, not least changes in job design factors that might account for the differences between younger and older groups. A poor match between the current realities facing mature workers on the one hand and inadequate organisational policies on the other underpins much of the discussion.
