Description & Coverage
Description:

There is no end in sight as the Fourth Industrial Revolution becomes more prevalent across the world. Artificial intelligence (AI) is making it imperative that machines and technology be integrated within the workplace. As the workforce ages, there has to be a way to acquire the tacit and explicit knowledge of these workers. The fields of human resource development and workforce development must lead in efforts to train and develop these workers for continuous technological change.

Strategies for Attracting, Maintaining, and Balancing a Mature Workforce is an essential reference source that examines efforts for engaging, retaining, and utilizing an aging workforce in a workplace that is increasingly becoming more technology-centered and provides reskilling and upskilling strategies to address the skills gaps. The title compiles vital human resource and workforce development strategies that assist these professionals with helping all employees at all levels within the workforce attain work, keep their jobs, and grow in their development to assist others. Featuring research on topics such as organizational culture, career learning, and agile workforce, this book is ideally designed for managers, executives, recruiters, hiring professionals, managing directors, human resources professionals, business researchers, industry professionals, academicians, and students.
