Helene Mountford

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting abstract


Originality: Contribution to literature by first adaptation of RBV to older workers in economic context. Key literature / theoretical perspective: Resource-based view Design/methodology/approach: Conceptual Findings: The under recognised value of older workers is argued. Research limitations/implications: As the Australian economy faces another labour shortage, particularly with the downturn in migration, employers need greater awareness of the increased productivity and competitive advantage of utilising older workers. Practical and Social implications: Employers can benefit through the inclusion of older workers (retained or hired) within their staff by the appropriate combination of different generations which bring a variety of skills and experiences to the workplace.
