"Can your organization afford to lose your reservoir of talented, experienced older workers in the coming years? If not, have you done serious strategic workforce planning to analyze the impact of baby boomer retirements and to identify potential skills gaps that could result? This session will look at key HR strategies that should be integrated into an overall talent management program for today’s multi-generational workforce. It will also look at lessons to be learned from recent research -- including the 2014 SHRM Aging Workforce Survey –and from best practice case studies of the Vita Needle Company and Scripps Health.

This presentation will cover the following objectives:

  • Help organizations make the most of their mature workforces.
  • Learn to position your organization to handle the realities of an aging workforce, including identifying skills gaps and developing strategies to address the situation.
  • Learn to turn this resource into a competitive advantage.
  • Learn how to position your organization to take advantage of new opportunities by viewing mature workers as a valuable source of talent to meet future staffing needs.
