Innovation to bridge age diversity in SMEs
Retirement policies and demographic changes in advanced industrial societies like Germany and the UK are responsible for the increasing age diversity in SMEs. Different ages react differently to innovation because a gap in fluid cognitive abilities exists that may compromise innovation at personal and organisational levels. SMEs need ways to prevent and even reverse the negative impacts of age diversity. A previous research project issued an innovative design based on cognitive ability training to reduce the decrease of fluid cognitive ability in older employees that was linked to leadership training as well. The EU-funded DINNOS project will evaluate this innovative design in SMEs in Germany and the UK.
