Age Diversity in The Workplace: 5 Lessons from The Intern

You are here:

Have you seen the film The Intern from back in 2015? It tells the story of Ben Whittaker (DeNiro), a seventy-year-old Executive that decided to apply as an intern in a scale-up after retirement had become too boring for him. It serves as an excellent analogy for the benefits of age diversity in the workplace.

In this Learning Bite, we describe 5 main takeaways about age diversity in the office and how it can help you improve your organizational performance:

  • Age diversity means skills diversity
  • Age diversity opens the mind
  • Age diversity creates mutual mentors
  • Have an adequate onboarding process
