The Silver Tsunami: A wave of Boomer retirements is coming. How should your business prepare?

A tidal wave of more than 100,000 experienced, talented Iowa workers are likely to retire in the next five years. Meanwhile, more than 72,000 Iowa workers are over the age of 64. Today, business leaders are faced with preparing for skills and institutional knowledge shortages, while managing an age-diverse workforce of four generations. When coupling that with a severe talent shortage, business leaders need a proactive plan to manage transitions and mitigate the loss of talent.

Join us for an enlightening discussion with our workforce experts, who will discuss the challenges facing Iowa workplaces, talk about possible solutions and offer ways your business can prepare, and even capitalize on the Silver Tsunami.
