The flexibility and universality of lifespan development psychology makes it an attractive framework to study workforce ageing.

Six subscales were identified in factor analysis that closely resembled the original conceptual model. Analysis of demographic data revealed that supervisory tasks and educational aspirations were related to selection of and engagement in learning and development activities.
