Older Americans Month: The Impact of an Aging Population in the Workplace

Older Americans Month: The Impact of an Aging Population in the Workplace Tagged with:

May is Older Americans Month, a time when we celebrate health awareness and how this practice can help us all to age happier, be healthier and live longer, more productive lives. Because 31.4 million of us over the age of 55 are still in the workforce, most health awareness can and should start in the workplace. These numbers are not going anywhere any time soon. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will be even larger numbers of older Americans in the workplace by 2022 with 41.7 million people gainfully employed. This suggests that now more than ever, employers must pay careful attention to make the workplace a safer, healthier and happier place for employees of all ages.
