In coming years the wave of baby-boomer retirements will cause a considerable drop in the workforce. Ageing work forces and changing employee expectations are challenging the ability of organizations to retain and exploit talent. More than ever, investing in an active talent management is not optional but an imperative for organizations to stay ahead of the competition.
For organizations it is important to recognize, exploit and retain the skilled talent and knowledge of their employees. The new way of working is, therefore, a perfect example. Employees are able to balance their work and private life more effectively and get more control over their working locations and working hours. This enables not only employees with children, but also less mobile people, to fully participate in the workforce.
