ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) released today a research report comparing the results of its Aging Workforce Survey and the SHRM Foundation’s Aging Workforce Effective Practice Guidelines Report.
The result is a look at the potential gaps between current practice in preparing for an aging workforce and the effective practices recommended by HR academics and other experts.
The analysis, Preparing for an Aging Workforce: Gap Analysis Report, identified four potential shortcomings in the current practices of employers:
“Despite these gaps, there are clear signs that awareness is growing among HR professionals about the potentially dramatic impact that the aging workforce will have on their organizations and industries,” said Jennifer Schramm, manager of workforce trends at SHRM. “HR professionals can lead organizations as they work to meet the challenges of this historic demographic change.”
The report is part of a three-year national initiative by SHRM and the SHRM Foundation to highlight the opportunities and challenges of an aging workforce and identify effective practices for recruiting and employing mature workers. The initiative is funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
