Most business leaders and human resource professionals understand that their organizations are feeling the impact of an aging and more age-diverse workforce, but few have analyzed the specifics or developed strategies to deal with the situation.2 Using the practical steps outlined in this report, HR teams can help position their organizations to handle the realities of an aging workforce and to turn this phenomenon into a competitive advantage.
