    Webinar Summary:

    10,000 U.S. Baby Boomers on average have been turning 65, the traditional retirement age, every day since 2011.  Even though large numbers of the 77 million Baby Boomers have already retired in the last four years, have U.S. organizations conducted strategic workforce planning and developed strategies to prepare for the loss of their experienced workers in the years ahead?

    What steps can Maryland HR professional take to retain, engage, and develop their older workers and keep them on board as long as possible?  What do older workers want and how do Maryland older worker demographics compare with the other U.S. states?

    The SHRM and AARP presenters will provide answers to these and other questions, including data from SHRM’s 2014 Aging Workforce Survey and AARP’s 2015 Business Case for Workers Age 50+Survey.

    In addition, they will provide examples of organizational best practices and support resources available through the SHRM-SHRM Foundation Aging Workforce Initiative, AARP’s Life Reimagined for Work Program, and many other SHRM and AARP tools and programs.
