Work isn’t just a way to make money. It’s also a great place to make friends, especially with people who are significantly younger or older than you, new research from AARP says.
According to a survey of 1,500 people age 18 and older, 37 percent of adults say they have a close friend who is at least 15 years older or younger than they are. Among those who said they had close intergenerational friendships, 26 percent of respondents say they met their pal on the job.
