When a quarter of your workforce is heading for the door, it's time for
some serious strategic thinking. One Australian organisation is tackling
the outflow of thousands of mature-age workers by 2015 with a series of
policy changes and initiatives that not only glean vital information
for the employer, but also improve the prospects for wannabe retirees.
However, a one-size-fits-all policy approach will not be effective in
all cases, warn researchers from the Australian School of Business. And
collecting data on the intentions of a growing number of mature-age
workers and their effect on the workplace is proving complicated.
