One in five American workers is age 55 or older. Almost half of the American workforce will be 45 or older in the next decade. Do employers fully realize the roles highly experienced workers can play and the value they can provide? Are 50-plus workers prepared to extend their careers another decade or two?

This webcast explores what employers should know about a group that has been called the largest trained pool of future employees, and sheds light on challenges and opportunities faced by mature workers.

  • Susanne Bruyère, ILR School associate dean, director of the Employment and Disability Institute, and professor of Disability Studies, will share recent research, including findings of an employer survey focused on mature workers;
  • Linda Barrington, executive director of ILR’s Institute for Compensation Studies, studies employment and pay issues, and will offer perspectives on implications for maturing workers;
  • Emily Allen, vice president of income impact, AARP Foundation, will talk about strategies to effectively engage the 50-plus workforce as a solution to worker and skill shortages.
