About This Session
For the first time in history, the workplace has five generations working together and the demand for older workers is currently on the rise—so much so that Americans aged 65 and older are projected to be the fastest growing workforce segment through 2024. With so many recruiters having shifted their recruitment practices to meet millennial candidates, Steve Cook from AARP Foundation will use this session to share information on how the older worker population is growing and statistics on this segment of the workforce. Steve will also dispel common myths associated with older workers, and finally share resources and tips for sourcing older talent.
