Baby Boomers are currently reaching retirement age, which means businesses must prepare for this generational shift.

Armed with this generational knowledge, businesses will be better able to address other issues that arise due to Baby Boomer retirement, including brain drain, the talent shortage, and planning for the future of the organization.
