Workforce Tip: Train So Boomers Don’t Get Left Behind

The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that by the year 2024, one in four members of the workforce will be 55 or older.

As the U.S. continues to become digital-first, and more Americans retire later in life, a digital disconnect may negatively impact older Americans. Without the skills possessed by their digital native colleagues, the boomer generation can fall behind or be less productive.

Companies should develop strategies that not only serve the younger workforce but also ensure older generations don’t get left behind.
