Author(s): Vidhi Tripathi and Shalini Agarwal
Work place bullying is defined as the repetitive and systematic engagement of interpersonally abusive behaviors that negatively affect both the targeted individual and the work organization. However, there also appear to be gender and management factors. Emotional/psychological consequences of workplace bullying may include increased mental distress, sleep disturbance, fatigue in women and lack of vigor in men, depression and anxiety, adjustment disorders, and even work –related suicide. This study examined the attitudes of older workers towards work and retirement, retirement planning and their willingness to continue working post retirement and to undergo retraining. Data were collected via questionnaire surveys. Respondent consisted of 80 individuals aged 60and above. Findings suggested that work occupied a salient part of the Respondents lives. In general, respondents also held rather ambivalent attitudes with regard to the prospect retirement, i.e, while they did not view retirement negatively, they were nevertheless anxious about certain aspects of retirement.
