On January 1, 2011 the first Baby Boomers turned 65. As well, 1 in 3 Canadian workers is over 50 years of age.

Industry has realized that they need to encourage older employees to work longer because there aren’t enough experienced younger people to replace them. Employers who begin now to identify and implement programs and policies to attract and retain older workers will find themselves well positioned to convert a potential resource into an actual one, and reap the benefits.

BGS’ Timeless Traveller for Business assists employers faced with the challenge of attracting and retaining workers through services including:

  • The “Redefining Retirement for the 21st Century” seminar that identifies the primary issues and questions employers must face as Baby Boomers retire. Areas of Discussion include:
    Review of today’s Retirement “Landscape” and what it means for employers

    • Factors that may encourage workers to postpone retirement
    • Strategies for keeping mature workers on the job
    • Myths, Benefits, and Opportunities of mature workers
    • How organizations must respond in order to survive the effects of the retiring workforce
