Workforce Training and Engagement

While exploring the issues related to an aging workforce, one issue illustrates a large problem. Many employers show no proactive leadership in preparing for an increasingly older workforce, likely engulfed with more disabilities, more health problems, and a need for flexibility in the workplace.

Employers need to develop programs and policies to encourage the retention of older employees by offering flexibility in the workplace, encouraging training of new skills and retraining of old skills, engaging employees in challenging projects and developing career advancement opportunities. Proactive businesses will maintain and increase diversity in their age demographics and will gain a competitive edge by retention of expertise and knowledge.
