Being an employee, I have report higher authority. Higher position depending on skill, talent, ability and knowledge etc. Not dependent on age so sincerely I will report.

Even An out of order wall clock or wrist watch also shows correct time two times a day. Earlier he/she had also worked on that same post/position as a responsible employee he/she must be given a chance to perform his/her duty whether she/he has the ability or not.

Company's policies must have strictly adhered too.

Besides, there is a difference between younger/Junior and elder/senior.

As an avid and relentless learner, reporting to a younger person, who on the other hand happens to be my senior with relevant experience.

There is no big deal because whatever attitude I portray will either make or mar the reputation of the department.

Therefore, I will ensure I provide the maximum support and cooperation needed and also respect the individual based base on what he/she represents.

Thanks.

If I have to report somebody, my attitude towards the person is not going to change on the basis of the age of the person. Age is just a number for me as it can not be regarded as a parameter to access one's calibre and intelligence. The other being younger to me hold the same respect as somebody older to me. So, here in this situation, I feel motivated while reporting to somebody younger to me and appreciate the achievement.

I have got nothing to do with the age of the person I am reporting to. His/Her qualifications, experience, knowledge and efforts might have lead to achieve good designation. As of me, it is reporting to my higher up and it is part of my job.

It doesn't matter for me to reporting the younger person.

I report to post, not to the age of the person. Age is just a number. And I think to repost someone only talent and post matter, not the age.

I personally feel age is just a number. It is the hard work and smart work along with determination which amplifies one's range. So, instead of feeling shamed or depressed of reporting to younger ones I will tend to gain knowledge from him and learn the possible ways to move ahead professionally.

Actually, in an organizational set up it doesn't matter whether your manager is younger or older than you. In my previous organization, I have seen people who are working there for 5 years is reporting to a 25-year-old manager who has just joined. I feel that's completely okay one shouldn't bring the age factor there.

Doesnt Matter said: (Sep 14, 2017)  
In my personal experience. It does matters and I will feel bad. Why? Because that younger person learned everything from me and now try to be smart and bossy because of his/her filthy talent of back kisser of my main boss and has SYMPATHY of my boss. I will leave such job immediately. It is not ego but truth, if you ask this hard question to yourself, Do you deserve this?

At workplace, age doesn't matter what matters experience. It could be possible that person younger than me in terms of age but has got much more practical knowledge & goal oriented skills, hence it will be my duty to understand those things first & give up all egos.
