It’s no secret that Vermont’s workforce is aging and creates both opportunities and challenges for employers. More and more employees are expected to delay retirement in the future and while experienced employees offer incredible value in terms of institutional knowledge, skill sets and the ability to mentor, having disengaged employees nearing retirement age can be a drain on an organizations productivity and costs. The question for employers then is how to maximize the value and engage employees nearing retirement age while also mitigating costs associated with those that are delaying retirement solely for financial reasons.
In this session, Shaun King and Michael Kilfoyle will talk about strategies to keep an aging workforce engaged and productive and how to help employees plan for retirement appropriately so that employees are not working solely for financial reasons, but to continue to contribute to an organization’s mission and purpose.
This seminar has been sumbitted for HRCI and SHRM and is awaiting approval.
