While this Glassdoor report was released at the end of 2019, I wanted to lift it back up since it provides a good reminder of hiring trends as well as challenges and opportunities. The report includes a list of 8 HR and recruiting trends for 2020 and what’s likely to shape the coming decade. Trend # 5 “Recruiters will adapt as 65+ Baby Boomers become the fastest-growing workforce” – a trend the report calls the “gray wave.” According to the report, this segment of the workforce is expected to grow by 61% over the next decade, compared to 5.5% for the overall American workforce. Likewise, in the UK, the 65+ population is expected to rise nearly 60% over the next 25 years, faster than any other demographic group. Given this trend, recruiting and talent acquisition strategists should ask and answer: What strategies can we employ to attract the booming 65+ workforce, so that we can address talent shortages and use this as a competitive advantage?
