Unretirement: What could it look like in your organization?
As competition for talent increases and needs shift with each generation, now is the time for employers to start thinking differently about older workers. If you’re an employer, what’s your strategy for retaining the skills and knowledge your organization depends on? Do your current retirement practices work against your need to retain skilled workers, effectively transfer knowledge from one generation to the next, and maintain productive employee relationships?
Economics correspondent Chris Farrell believes organizations can adapt to this new trend in the workforce and use it to their advantage. Learn more about that from Chris at the SHIFT Employer Forum in Minneapolis on Tuesday, Dec. 9. Chris focuses on the changing work environment in his new book, Unretirement: How Baby Boomers Are Changing the Way We Think About Work, Community and the Good Life.
Come find out what the move toward unretirement will mean for you and your organization. At this Forum, you will also have an opportunity to learn how SHIFT and its many different offerings can support your workers as they enter midlife. In addition, you’ll receive information about AARP’s exciting new Life Reimagined initiative and Encore.org’s innovative Encore Fellowship program.
