Call for Papers:

Businesses and organisations around the world are facing
the challenges of employing a workforce that is ageing
in a world that is ageing. Concerns of company leaders
and managers in the western world have shifted from
considering options for their own and their employees'
"early retirement" to the issue of at what age they will
eventually be able to retire. Companies must address the
issue of integrating fast-growing Generation Y populations
who may be at work till the age of 67-70 into workforces
led and managed by people with different life experiences.

Many global and globalising leaders are simultaneously
addressing both of these issues which present challenges
for managers and the organisation, for career management,
pensions, technological forecasting and innovation, public
policy, education and training. This makes it timely and
appropriate to gather the research and experiences of both
academics and professional practitioners in this domain.

As its societies age, the world is undergoing a remarkable
transformation, and its impact will ripple through all
sectors of the global economy. In the West, leadership and
management of an increasingly ageing workforce will pose
new challenges for managers and management education,
and to the pace, structures and working practices of
their organisations. To date, there has been little or no
substantive research on the impact of these demographic
changes on the practice of management, or the implications
for the next generation of its leaders and managers.

Simultaneously, emerging countries (led by, but not limited to,
the BRIC economies), are undergoing rapid industrialisation
and modernisation. These efforts have been, and mostly
continue to be, led and managed by generational cohorts
with little or no history (or training) of company leadership and
management development within their own countries. Younger
people (e.g. called Generation Y) are increasingly entering
emerging and developing country workforces with different
expectations and assumptions than those of their leaders and
managers. There is little substantive research on (optimising)
the effectiveness and of cross-generational working in
companies within emerging economies.

Finally, there is, to date, a dearth of research on how MNCs
and globalising companies are simultaneously leading and
managing the challenges posed by social and technological
change, and by the different changing demographics in
developed, emerging and developing country environments.

Within the theme "Multigenerational Challenges: integrating
age into manAGEment and organisation" we invite you to
submit papers on (but not be limited to):
