The Big Boomer Theory

The aging of the baby boomers has led to the graying of the American workforce. In fact, the number of Americans over 65 is expected to double in the next 50 years. This demographic trend is a challenge for employers as well as safety professionals. - Your workforce is getting older every day. Are you prepared?

By 2020, there will be a dramatic shortage of skilled labor trying to deal with the nearly $900 billion in construction projects expected in the Southeast in the next decade. - Speaker addresses need for skilled workforce


From the Longwoods Archives

Now is the time to rethink retirement, so that workforce renewal is orderly, planned and responsive to the needs of people and organizations.
In Canada, the supply of executive and management roles will soon suffer deep losses due to the baby boomer retirement demographic, who will be very difficult to replace because of the advanced educational and experiential requirements associated with health leadership roles
