“Boomeranging”: Strategies for Revitalizing an Aging Workforce - Advanced Level
Aging workforces are here now - and becoming more so in many companies throughout the world. Unless leaders make the right adjustments, this demographic shift could adversely affect Safety receptivity and worsen injury frequency and severity (especially strains/sprains, slips/trips/falls and those related to the ability to shift attention.) But studies show that workers who are “young at heart" are more productive, efficient and last longer at work. With the right approach, many otherwise deteriorating characteristics associated with aging can be dramatically slowed and even turned around with strategies designed to “youthify" workers, physically and mentally. Experience has consistently shown that younger thinking, and more important, younger acting workers of any age can indeed become more sure-footed, agile, receptive, alert, motivated, creative and energized.
- Identify mental and physical potential affects of aging on safety, productivity and motivation when left unchecked
- Discuss the hidden advantages of aging workforces and how to extend them
- Review 3 integrated leadership strategies for “youthifying” your workforce
