Preparing for the Aging Workforce

The Society for Human Resource Management reports that only about one-third of all employers are prepared for the effects of our aging workforce.  With Baby Boomers reaching or nearing retirement age, employers could be impacted if not properly prepared.  Our October meeting will offer a panel of subject matter experts who will provide an overview of the issues that all employers need to consider.  

Panel presenters include Jimmy Taylor, Partner with BizMultiplier, who will be speaking about workforce forecasting; Maretta Collins, Lead Coach with AARP, who will speak about the partnership between Tarrant County College and AARP in focusing on the mature worker; Terry Cooley, Vice President of HR at Penhall Company, who will provide insights about organizational knowledge management; and LaTonya Lacy, MCHRA's Aging Workforce Initiative Chair, who will share some important research from SHRM on the impact of our Aging Workforce.
