“Extensive studies show that two-thirds of U.S. employers don’t actively recruit or retain older workers. “They offer no special provisions such as flexible work arrangements to appeal to the concerns of mature workers. Most CEOs say their companies don’t account for workforce aging in their long-term business plans.” (HBR)

At the same time the workforce is aging and depleting, it is becoming increasingly diverse with an unprecedented mix of ages and attitudes. This presentation is about the strategic implications of an aging workforce:

  • The demographic trends that are shaping employment.
  • The changing values of workforce segments.
  • The implications and challenges for employers; i.e., how to strengthen the relationship between employees of all ages and their employers.”
