Best Practices in Recruiting and Retaining an Aging Workforce: Intersection with Disability Considerations

It is projected that over a third of the American workforce will be over 50 years of age within five years, and this phenomenon is occurring in many other countries throughout the world. Businesses need to understand the complexities and recognize opportunities associated with an aging workforce to maintain marketplace competitiveness that continues to reward the innovation and responsiveness. This webinar will provide an overview of workplace policies and practices promoting effective retention of older workers, including workers with disabilities, gained from a recent study conducted by Cornell University of best practices in U.S. private sector workplaces. As a result, participants will be able to: * Describe specific workplace policy, practice and accommodation considerations for an aging workforce; * Identify examples of company best practices in accommodating an aging workforce; and * Access related key resources in the recruitment and retention of an older workforce.
