Businesses benefit from hiring and retaining 50+ workers, as they demonstrate greater levels of engagement, lower rates of turnover, and stronger applied skills and experience. Building a multigenerational workforce can lead to business success by enhancing recruitment, retention, and profitability.

By 2024, workers over 55 will comprise nearly a quarter of the workforce, and those 50+ will make up over one-third of the workforce. As Baby boomers continue to work past retirement age, and companies find it increasingly difficult to fill their open positions with qualified workers with the right skills, more employers will need to attract and retain strong talent to maintain their competitive advantage.
