Today’s episode features Paul Irving, Chairman of the Milken Institute for the Future of Aging. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics there are around 8.9 million employees over the age of 65 in the US, a number that will continue to increase over the next few years. With advances in healthcare we are living longer and many employees are no longer able to retire in their 60s which means they are working loner. It is an increasingly important issue for organizations to pay attention to because attracting and retaining top talent doesn’t just mean focus on younger workers. Today’s topic centers on the aging workforce and what this means for our economy, our careers, and our lives. Find out Paul’s take on what will happen to organizations not paying attention to this trend, his advice to older workers, and how to start creating formal policies to take advantage of this shift in demographics.
