Description

In Granny @ Work , Karen Riggs - a renowned expert on aging - shows how employers, software engineers, and public policy makers are thinking about the roles older adults might play in the workplace of the future - and asks whether those on the front lines of corporate life are actually looking out for the interests of a graying workforce. She also examines dominant beliefs about aging and technology as seen in popular culture, ranging from films like Cocoon and Space Cowboys to speciality websites and magazines aimed at older workers.
