Description/Abstract

As the number of elderly workers increase, the challenges of efficient productivity among them increase as well. Organizational Psychology can contribute to improvement in this area. Specifically, this study examines problems caused by a lack of general computer operations efficiency and electronic data acquisition proficiency in older workers (50+ years) in the everyday American workforce and how this issue can be addressed through Organizational Psychology to increase performance and alleviate anxiety they may experience due to feelings of inadequacy in the workplace. This project analyzes data from previously published studies over the last 20 years dealing with technology and its effect on the working class elderly, and offers a brief overview of possible solutions that could be facilitated by organizational psychologists.
