Come join us to explore the impact of the “Brain Drain” as the Baby Boomers begin to exit the workplace. This program will help you identify factors for consideration as you contemplate how to approach those 55 years+ in your workplace.

Workshop Topic:

Five types of Baby Boomers in the Workplace can create a variety of options and challenges for the HR Professional.
