(STUDY FINDS) -- PORTLAND, Ore. — Feeling stressed out at work may become more frequent in middle-age or our senior years, research shows.
Workplace practices that can negatively affect job satisfaction among employees young and old were found to be even more detrimental on the stress levels of older workers, according to the Portland State University study.
“These are things that employers should provide to all employees, but may be especially important for older employees,” says study co-author Donald Truxillo, a psychology professor at the university, in a release. “You don’t want to have a company policy that says, ‘We treat young people this way and old people that way,’ but it does show you that age-sensitive human resource systems should be in place where you maybe train managers on how to be aware of the needs of their different workers.”
