A document came across my desk this week that I found fascinating. It’s a presentation about workforce development and it outlines some good ideas, but what made my jaw drop was one slide about our workforce demographics. It says that in 2006, 31% of UTMB’s workforce is 55 or older, but by 2015, 61% of us will be 55 or older. More than 600 of us could retire this year, but in four years, another 1300 could retire—and by 2015, almost 2300 additional employees could retire! I know there are variables, questions and some assumptions here that I should check out, but when you talk about the impact of the Baby Boomers, here it is up close and personal.
