This paper deals with the effects of intergenerational learning and forms part of an empirical study of intergenerational learning in the workplace that was conducted in a small manufacturing company. The main objective of the study is to answer the following question: What are the effects of intergenerational learning in the workplace? In order to investigate the issue as thoroughly as possible, the entire research survey was designed as a case study, applying both qualitative and quantitative data collection methods. Answers to the main research question of this paper were obtained by conducting fourteen individual semi-structured interviews that enabled us to identify the effects of intergenerational learning, ranging from positive to negative.
