Designing for Age Diversity in the Workplace
While Millennials get all the headlines, much more interesting things are happening at the other end of the age spectrum. People over 55 represent the fastest growing segment of the U.S. workforce. Ten thousand baby boomers turn 65 every day and will for the next decade, and 75% intend to continue to work in some fashion. Tapping into this pool of highly experienced and knowledgeable workers is a critical opportunity for companies facing one of the most significant talent shortages in 50 years.
Join us as Erik Lucken, RSP Director of Workplace Strategy, presents how the multi-generational workforce came to be, and how smart, intentional design of office buildings and workplaces can help to attract, retain, engage, and empower all five generations present in the U.S. workforce today.
Discussion Objectives and Key Takeaways:
- Identify the forces that are creating the first truly multi-generational workforce in the U.S.
- Recognize the benefits of a multi-generational workforce for people, teams, organizations, and the economy
- Distinguish between fact and fiction regarding common generational stereotypes on workstyle and workplace preferences;
- Demonstrate how strategic design of office buildings and workplaces can help to attract, retain, and leverage an age-diverse workforce.
Who should you invite?
Your designers, move coordinators, and project team members along with your HR manager. Anyone who influences the design of your work environments.
