Perennials, not millennials, will trigger the next wave of talent retention efforts
With people living longer and the shortage of competent younger people, it's no surprise that this trend exists.
Older workers—or “perennials,” as this cohort has sometimes been called—are now the fastest-growing population of workers, with twice as many seniors as teenagers currently employed in the US.

Older workers tend to be exceptionally good a problem solving skills as compared to younger workers. It would be foolish to not tap into the skills offered by the older demographic.
In the 30-year span from 1994 to 2024, workers aged 55 and older will go from being the smallest segment of the US working population to the largest, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Other industrialized nations are seeing similar trends; in Japan and South Korea, the workforce is aging even faster.
