Prevalence and Impact of Ageism in India Inc.

Research project with Randstad India

We are excited to announce the successful completion of our groundbreaking research project on ageism in the Indian workplace, conducted in collaboration with Randstad India.

Prejudice and bias in the workplace manifest in various forms. One such form with the potential to affect virtually all employees during their working lives is ageism. Ageism refers to “stereotypes, prejudice, or discrimination against (but also in favour of) people because of their chronological age”. It can be directed towards both younger and older workers. Moreover, it is often not just one’s age that matters. Intersectionality with gender, race, or other characteristics can also play a key role.

Randstad India, in collaboration with In Diverse Company, explored the presence (or absence) of age-based discrimination in India Inc. How it manifests in the workplace for different age groups. What impact it creates. What ageism-related challenges organisations and leaders face, and what can be done about it.

We also successfully explored some of the best practices from the perspectives of both the employees and employers

The research project was successfully completed in 2024, and the following report was published. 

We want to express our gratitude to everyone who participated in this important study.

Together, we can create a workplace where everyone feels valued, respected, and empowered to share their authentic selves.
