In today's industry, motivation is a primary factor in performance (Glueck, 1977). Motivation. not only comes into play with the extrinsic factors of the working conditions but also deals with the intrinsic factors of the individual in question. What happens when this person reaches his mid-forties? Industry is now realizing the humanistic side of working and has noticed an attitudinal change in their employees at this time of life. Production reports show the physical changes (i.e., production quotas go down) but what causes these changes? How does it affect industry and how can industry help their employees at middle age?
