Utitlizing Older Workers for Competitive Advantage

The Time Bomb is Ticking as Baby Boomers Approach Early Retirement

As the oldest Baby Boomers reach early retirement age in 2008, the U.S. faces enormous problems…talent shortages are projected as high as 10 million by 2010.

All industrialized countries are facing an aging and shrinking population-ageing because more people are living longer (longevity increased by 30 years in the 20th century) and shrinking because of lower birth rates.

  • 78 million Baby Boomers are aging, with the oldest reaching early retirement age of 62 in 2008 and each year thereafter through 2025 at 4.28 million.
  • 80 percent of the Baby boomers indicate that they intend to keep working after retirement—a large and growing talent pool with experience, expertise, seasoned judgement and proven performance that is critical to utilize for economic growth and development.
  • In 1950, there were 16.5 workers for every retiree; today that ratio is 3.3:1 and by 2030 will be reduced to 2:1.
  • With unsustainable social programs, a federal deficit of $357 billion and national debt at $9.3 trillion, utilizing workers 55+ will sustain U.S. productivity gains and economic growth

Warning: Failure to utilize this large and growing talent pool to a substantially greater degree will reduce productivity gains, economic growth and our standard of living.
