CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (October 7, 2010) – Loss of critical knowledge and shortage of skilled workers ranked highest among concerns related to the maturing workforce according to CPI’s 2010 Global Workforce Survey released today. More than 1600 individuals from 26 countries including 560 senior executives and 700 HR executives and managers responded to the survey. A webinar was held today to discuss findings. The analysis of the survey results can be found at cpiworld.com/knowledge-center/webinars.
“What is most concerning, is that industries that expect the most serious impacts from retirements, seem least likely to change their recruitment and retention programs,” observed Dr. David DeLong, president of DeLong & Associates. He also noted that the recent recession may have masked the imminent danger posed by the looming retirement of high skilled baby boomers. Dr. DeLong, author of Lost Knowledge, Confronting the Threat of an Aging Workforce, and noted expert on strategic impacts of changing workforce demographics collaborated with CPI on the survey analysis.
