The rise of new publics in organizational communication
Organization and senior publics
The western society is facing significant socio-demographic changes
leading to an increasingly longer life expectancy and reduced
renovation. We witness the extension of active life at work as opposed
to what happened in the 1980s and 1990s, when people retired from active
life at very early ages. With this transformation, organizations are
starting to have increasingly higher age averages, which require that
human resources management change paradigm, and communication strategies
adjust to senior publics.
These new realities require a deeper understanding of these senior
publics, which not so long ago were considered «expendable» and their
replacement for younger generations was seen as unquestionable truth.
Communication and organizational culture
Organizational culture at the internal level contributes strongly to the
greater motivation and cohesion of the organizational members.
Communicating with these publics requires that communication adapts to
them, responding to their needs and being able to mobilize them for the
consolidation of organizational culture. Besides these symbolic
dimensions, there other objective dimensions associated with their life
path and which may also contribute to organizational knowledge with the
transfer of their wealth to the younger generation.
To identify the dimensions with which each one may contribute to the
organizational culture and knowledge is the challenge faced by human
resources management and communication to mobilize these publics,
turning them into active elements in the new organizational realities
Call for papers
This special issue aims to bring together contributions that enable an
understanding of how societies are managing population ageing and the
extension of working life, as well as how these factors are being
assimilated by the organizations, which often stigmatize seniors to hire
young professionals whom they pay less and from whom they think they can
demand more, losing organizational references. As core element one aims
to receive contributions that may reflect the management of new
organizational realities both for the management of human resources and
for the management of communication.
Some topics which fit this theme are:
· Active ageing and the new realities of today’s societies;
· The extension of working life, new organizational realities, both for
human resources management and for the management of communication in
· New publics and new communication tools;
· The rise of new publics and the development of new communication
· The worth of senior publics in organizations: contribution of senior
professionals for the development of the social capital of an
organization or a social network;
· Communication and the management of organizational culture and senior
