The Value Of Older Workers
For the last 40 years, the baby boom generation has shaped the American workplace. This trend continues. But today's boomers are posing a new challenge: how to support a staff made up of workers in their 50s, 60s, even 70s. Next year the youngest boomers turn 50. And older members of the generation are also sticking around. A recent study found that since 2008 the average retirement age increased three years to 62. Those boomers still working estimate that they won't retire until age 66. Diane and her guests discuss how an aging workforce is transforming the workplace.
