Ft. Lauderdale, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/15/2017 -- Manufacturing journalist TR Cutler is addressing the critical juncture of an aging manufacturing workforce. According to Cutler, as baby boomers retire, the ranks of managers and supervisors are being depleted. Organizations are also losing the wisdom carried by experience, hard-won repositories of technical knowledge, and personal case studies of problem-solving. Further, networks of professional contacts that aided internal and external collaboration, innovation, and team performance are gradually weakened as baby boomers exit the workplace.
Most organizations, by their own report, are not doing enough to address this impending short supply of internal leadership. From the perspective of millennials and members of post-baby boom demographics, this leadership vacuum is disempowering and frustrating. When leadership is ad hoc and constantly churning, it is difficult to win resources and commitment for projects or plans that extend beyond the organization's current fiscal year.
Cutler finds the elements of employment engagement keeps those workers who would otherwise age-out of the workforce can be persuaded to stay and delay the loss of vital company knowledge and experience.
