It's time for CHROs and CFOs to face the silver tsunami together.
Every day, an estimated 10,000 Baby Boomers reach the traditional retirement age, a trend that will last for the next decade or more.
Sadly, many of these eligible retirees are not prepared for the transition because of social, financial, and emotional reasons. While this heavily impacts the lives of employees, it also has a dramatic impact on organizations as well.
When a person is reluctant to retire, healthcare costs and wages increase, productivity is stifled, and organizational growth becomes stagnant, make it nearly impossible to develop and retain young talent and, therefore, new ideas.
For these reasons, it is important that CHROs and CFOs work together to make sure they are prepared to weather the generational shift taking place in the modern workforce.
