Seeking an Intergenerational Workforce - Lunch Program

  • Worcester Technical High School 1 Skyline Drive Worcester, MA, 01605 United States (map)

Many organizations are woefully unprepared for the rapidly and persistently shifting age demographics of our time. In the United States, more than 11,000 people turn 65 every day.  Next year more people will be over 60 than under 18.  People are healthier and better educated than ever before but they are not necessarily wealthier.  For many, retirement at age 65 is not desirable or practical.  Many employers fail to address this changing reality.  Too often, they focus on attracting younger workers while failing to develop strategies to find, retain and support older job applicants and employees.

Join me as we explore approaches to hiring and retention that are intentional about developing an intergenerational workforce. We will bust ageist myths; we will ponder the value of a workforce that is diverse by age; and, we will consider the benefits of flexible employment.  We can turn crisis into opportunity.
