The article discusses the impact of an aging baby boomer generation on U.S. businesses, and how firms can adapt. Persons born between 1946 and 1964 substantially outnumber the succeeding generation. As these individuals near retirement age, companies could face shortages of skilled workers. Among steps firms can take to keep baby boomers on the job are creating flexible work schedules and making workplaces ergonomically friendly to the needs of an aging work force. Benefits apt to have special appeal to older workers include long-term care insurance and stress counseling.
