Reports state that age discrimination does occur both in the workplace and during the hiring process, and many times, it's not necessarily a conscious act. Perceptions, experience and stereotypes may all play a role in the evaluation of an employee or prospective candidate. Kerry Hannon is the "Jobs Expert" for AARP and a contributing editor to Forbes magazine, as well as the writer for the "Second Verse" column for Forbes.com. Kerry discusses with Tim Muma the elements and factors that play a role in age discrimination. She also explains the challenges mature workers and job seekers face, while offering up some advice on how to fight against ageism. Life vs. Work examines the delicate balance of running a business while ensuring the satisfaction of employees and management. From home life to health to time constraints, we consider what measures can be taken to understand the human side of human resources - and still be productive.
