People Management;5/1/2008, Vol. 14 Issue 9, p7
The article discusses the findings of two human resources (HR) management-related studies conducted by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and the Adecco Institute. Research findings indicated that HR must do more long-term workforce planning to win the war for talent. Changing demographics, in particular the imminent retirement of older, skilled workers at a time when there are fewer young people to replace them, means HR will have to plan ahead to retain the competence in their organizations.
