With advances in medicine and public health, Americans are living and working longer, resulting in an unprecedented transformation of the workplace. The mature workforce is growing at a rate that outpaces the overall growth of the labor force. The number of Americans over age 55 in the labor force by 2026 is projected to increase to 42.1 million and make up nearly one quarter of the workforce.
Mature workers bring knowledge, wisdom and experience to the workforce. Hiring and retaining them can help employers maintain valuable skills, address workforce shortages, and increase workplace diversity, all of which can contribute to improved outcomes.
The Roundtable Outcomes:
Learn about resources and solutions that are in place to support older adults who are searching for employment.
Gain an understanding of the business case for hiring, retaining and supporting mature workers.
Hear about how one of the nation’s largest health enterprises makes the business case for recruiting and hiring talented older adults.
Find out about programs that employers are developing to support the increasing number of mature workers they employ. Learn about programs, ranging from on-the-job training and skill development for today’s labor force to health and wellness programs and support for caregivers.
Find out how community-based and national organizations are equipping unemployed older adults with the skills and resources to regain and maintain employment and to compete with confidence to today’s in-demand jobs.
