What is Corporate Gerontology?

Corporate Gerontology is a newly defined social science and academic discipline that addresses economic parity, organizational and physical issues of the workplace, and supply channels from marketplace to consumer.

While concentrating on the latter part of work life, it includes the time 40+, when age becomes an issue in the workplace. After age 40, American workers are covered by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1974.

Corporate Gerontologists work strategically with business, professional and government decision makers to address the multi-faceted issues impacting aging research, education, practice enterprise, and business models.

Tackling the issues and challenges, the Gerontologist identifies solutions that address the ever growing need for innovative technology, products, services, and support.
