Introduction
The activities of oil and gas corporations in Nigeria have been widely criticized about environmental, social and economic benefit to the host communities. In a bid to achieve corporate sustainability within Nigeria, they engage in the building of hospitals, schools, markets and provision of pipe borne water amongst others (Amaeshi, Adi, Ogbechie, & Amao, 2006).
Academics, such as Edoho (2008), Frynas (2009), Akpan (2006), Tuodolo (2007, 2009) and others have argued that these are best described as corporate social responsibilities. They contend that despite organizations’ efforts and attempts at sustainability, the process of corporate sustainability in Nigeria is not far-reaching or deeply entrenched. In this regard, Porter & Kramer (2011) viewed this as one of the major causes of environmental, economic and social problems. This is because, such sustainability programs or behaviour are considered as inconsistent, inadequate and has subsequently led to poor perception by members of the public (Amaeshi, Adi, Ogbechie & Amao, 2006).
Most studies that have examined the impact of age diversity on intra-organizational communications have found little evidence that it has a positive impact (Gupta, 2013; Simons and Rowland, 2011; Ali, Kulik, & Metz, 2011). In fact, Rietzchel and Zacher (2015) have found that age is an important flashpoint for communication within the firm. According to Darwin (2014), this body of literature finds that age diversity makes communication both difficult and infrequent and may ultimately result in communication breakdown within the firm. Furthermore, the differences between the young and the old employees may result in disparities in the values and preferences of the different age groups making communication difficult.
Economic sustainability refers to a business’s ability to make profit in order to survive and benefit the economic systems at the local and national level (Roberts and Tribe, 2008: 584). Sustainable businesses consider their economic impact on the community, such as job creation, local wages, and their contribution to local economic growth. In addition, suppliers and engagement across the supply chain to ensure similar values and practices are issues of economic sustainability. At the>>>>>>more
