    SESSION 1: Avoiding the Boomer Drain: HR Strategies and Best Practices 
    Can your organization afford to lose your reservoir of talented, experienced older workers in the coming years? If not, have you done serious strategic workforce planning to analyze the impact of baby boomer retirements and to identify potential skills gaps that could result? This session will look at key older worker strategies that should be integrated into an overall talent management program for today’s multi-generational workforce. It will also look at lessons to be learned from recent research -- including the 2012 SHRM-AARP Strategic Workforce Planning Poll –and from best practices by organizations honored with AARP’s 2011 Best Employers for Workers over 50 Award.

    Do you have an effective strategy in place to meet your critical talent needs over the next five or ten years? If not, you are probably as concerned as the CEOs in many surveys who worry that they will not have the talent they need to compete in a recovering global economy. In this presentation, you will explore the main demographic and other drivers of the global competition for critical talent, four components of an effective talent management strategy, and best practices case studies of companies with successful programs.
