Corporations Woo Baby Boomers - Is That So?'s a shocker! With more than 1 in 4 workers eyeing retirement, companies are scrambling to keep valued employees.

According to this CNN/Money Magazine article:

  • "Corporate America is finally waking up to the extensive experience mature employees bring to the table and placing value on the benefits of retaining older workers."

  • "Firms are actively seeking to keep their baby boomer employees, enticing individuals with flex hours, part-time, telecommuting consulting -- exhausting every known resource to accommodate their employees."

  • "More corporations are choosing to "rehire" older employees by involving them in mentoring programs, giving them access to coaching, strategy development and research programs.

BOTTOMLINE: Older employees, younger's not age that's in demand. It's the level of knowledge, experience, maturity, and passion that is really in demand.
