Gray Skies, Silver Linings

The specter of baby-boomer retirements looms large, causing workforce shortages and knowledge-retention crises. How can companies respond? By analyzing their own data and using it to plan strategically, by managing mature workers as carefully as they manage younger ones, and by designing recruitment plans to hire those who want to work past retirement age. Twelve case studies highlight companies who have already risen to the challenge of impending retirements, and provide a template and a game plan for every executive who has concerns about mature workers.
