Abstract

Within the field of Human Resource Management, the topic of age related differences within the workforce has been of interest as a method of understanding the dynamics of workforce management. This study aims to develop a deeper understanding in age related differences by focusing specifically on influence tactics subordinates use to influence their supervisors. The current research shows gaps in the understanding of how the comparative age of a supervisor (the age of a supervisor compared to the age of a subordinate i.e. older, younger) affect the use of influence tactics. This study shows how the comparative age of a supervisor affects the use of influence tactics. This study additionally looks at the relationship between influence tactics and organizational commitment.
