Today’s buzz: Millennials vs Boomers.

The “M” word – Millennials – seems to be top-of-mind whenever we discuss workforce issues. But Baby Boomers age 60+ are still very much a force to be reckoned with in the workplace.

Two of the urgent questions your executive leadership and HR team should be asking – and answering: What do the Boomers in your company want and need from your organization today in order to stay on top of their game and be productive, effective, and happy at work? How can you prepare for the significant skills gap that is inevitable whenever your Baby Boomer workers decide to retire?

The experts speak.

Richard Eisenberg, PBS Nextavenue.org: “60+ boomers who are still working full-time want to receive training that is so often restricted to younger employees regarding new technology tools and ways to be more productive and efficient… and want help transitioning into encore careers.”

Donald Truxillo, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology: Organizations should find ways to develop a climate that supports people of all ages to enhance organizational health.”

Gabby Burlacu, Cloud Customer Office, SAP: “The old believe everything, the middle-aged suspect everything, and the young know everything.” (Oscar Wilde)
