Avoiding the Boomer Drain: HR Strategies and Best Practices

Educational Luncheon 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Presented by Robert Garcia, SHRM’s Director of Global Business Development


Program Summary:

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 older worker 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 2012 SHRM-AARP Strategic Workforce Planning Poll –and from best practices by organizations honored with AARP’s 2011 Best Employers for Workers over 50 Award.
