We’re pleased to congratulate Richard A. Posthuma of the University of El Paso and Michael A. Campion of Purdue University, who are this year’s winner of the Journal of Management 2014 Best Paper Award! Their paper, “Age Stereotypes in the Workplace: Common Stereotypes, Moderators, and Future Research Directions” appeared in the January 2009 issue of Journal of Management. The authors received this award at the 2014 Annual Academy of Management Conference. In celebration of this award, the paper can be read for free for the next 30 days!
The authors identify, analyze, and summarize prior research from 117 research articles and books that deal with age stereotypes in the workplace. They discover and report the most prevalent and well-supported findings that have implications for human resource management. These findings are described in terms of prevalent age stereotypes that occur in work settings, evidence refuting age stereotypes, and moderators of age stereotypes. The authors provide recommendations for practice and future research.
