Chapter from: "Workforce Crisis: How to Beat the Coming Shortage of Skills and Talent"
Published by: Harvard Business Publishing
Published in: 2007

Abstract

Due to the convergence of three important demographic realities - the disproportionate size of the baby boom generation, increasing longevity, and declining birthrates - an unprecedented shift in the age distribution of the population, and more specifically, the labor force, is under way. According to the authors, few large organizations are really prepared for this transformation of the workforce. This chapter outlines the impending workforce crisis, insisting that organizations must look at the workforce quite differently starting now and adapt workforce management practices accordingly. This chapter is excerpted from ‘Workforce Crisis: How to Beat the Coming Shortage of Skills and Talent'.
