    • Making New Hires Productive Faster
    • Improving Knowledge Transfer Across Generations
    • Minimizing the Risks & Costs of Lost Knowledge

  • Confronting the Threats and Opportunities of a Changing Workforce: A Framework for Action

    The changing workforce -
    • aging baby boomers, restless mid-careers, and unpredictable Millennials -
    • poses a serious challenge for improving performance in organizations. What should you be doing today to invest in leadership, workforce development and knowledge retention initiatives that support strategic business objectives? This talk shows how to:
    • Diagnose the strategic impacts of a changing workforce in your organization

    • Create a more integrated approach to developing future workforce & leadership capabilities
    • Address the latest challenges that are threatening workforce & leadership development

One survey before the recent recession reported 77% of today’s workers expect to work for pay even after they retire. But beyond the slow economy there are seven false assumptions that keep older job seekers unemployed. Based on 50 interviews with leading experts, this talk shows everyone who is likely to stay in the workforce longer than their parents how to succeed in the new market for talent.

    • How to avoid seven mistakes that keep boomers unemployeed
    • Five specific steps that promise a more effective job search strategy
    • What organizations must do to maximize the performance of a veteran talent pool
