Aging Workforce or Secret Weapon?
A New Approach Changes Everything

March 21, 2018 | 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT
Duration: 60 minutes


The Aging Workforce. We hear this phrase everywhere. And so much time is devoted to discussion of this rapidly growing population, as 80% of baby boomers plan to work past the age of 65. Estimates place 25% of the labor force at age 55 or older within a couple of years.

This trend is often presented as a negative — something to “manage.” The implication is that employers need to find workarounds and coping mechanisms for this “undesirable” change in the fabric of the American workforce.

But that’s just not the case. New data shows that this shift in the workforce can actually work in your favor. The aging workforce is proving to be an asset — to safety, productivity and profitability — for leading, innovative employers.

Webinar Takeaways

  • Access and analyze the right data to monitor health and productivity trends

  • Recognize your aging workforce’s untapped potential and quantify the positive impact

  • Safely integrate your aging employees and keep them free from injury, thus creating a halo effect that benefits your entire employee population

Attend and earn a Certificate of Completion you can use to apply for CEUs with BCSP directly or CoC points with BCPE directly.
