Blurb/Shorttext:
Fact: the workforce of tomorrow will look drastically different from the workforce of today. Employees today are part of an economy that is subject to ever-expanding technological developments and constant globalization that affect workforce demographics at a mind-numbing speed. Perhaps the most ominous factors leading to change point to a severe movement in the average age of the working population. This book introduces the fact that the average worker of tomorrow will likely be of a much higher age, due to various reasons such as continuously increasing life expectancy, low fertility rates since the mid-70s, and stagnating immigration for most of the EU25. From a personnel management perspective, an ageing population will create turbulence in human resource strategies for all industries at all levels. New questions will quickly arise: Will there be a labour shortage in my field? (Is there already one?) Who will replace the large proportion of workers about to retire? This book aims to answer these and other questions by providing a spectrum of promising HR measures that will lead organisations to overcome the impacts of demographic change in the near future.
