Description

Overview : This webinar will focus on gaining a better understanding of the older worker at work so you know what to expect as our workforce ages.

Older employees now constitute a larger segment of the workforce than in previous years. In general, for most states up to 20% of workers’ in most industries are 55 or older. It is projected by the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) that by 2016, almost 55 million US workers will be 50 or older. Nearly half of workers expect to work up into their 70s to 80s or as long as they are able to do so according to a study by AARP. And nearly 7 of 10 plan to work in retirement or never retire.

The demographics of work are changing drastically as a result of the baby boomers getting older and remaining in the workforce. Older persons simply like to do work. They are enjoying longer and healthier lives and are returning to work after raising children. But most likely many continue to work for economic reasons as well as insurability reasons, especially given today’s healthcare market.Older workers bring a wealth of experience, skill and knowledge to the workplace. They also sometimes develop health issues that can be associated with work resulting in unwanted workers' compensation claims and costs. With this in mind, employers need to be better prepared to prevent and manage injuries and illnesses associated with this aging population at work. Having wellness programs, good safety and health programs including ergonomics and understanding how to accommodate the older worker is essential in controlling costs related to this population.
