  • Description
    "...Specifically, we suggest that age diversity appreciation is positively related to nurses' well-being (stress and work–life balance), and also positively related to their team commitment. We further hypothesize that nurses' trust in co-workers mediates the hypothesized relationships. Our survey data of 138 nurses in a large hospital in Germany supported our hypotheses. We discuss both theoretical and managerial implications of our findings in the context of age diversity and nursing work outcomes in hospitals." (extract from abstract)
