January 1st, 2008 was an important date for the American workforce. It marked the date when tens of thousands of Baby Boomers began retiring from the workforce each year. Most organizations are not prepared for the coming perfect storm caused by this exodus, the relatively small numbers of Generation X to replace the leaving Baby Boomers, and the work attitudes of Generation Y.
There are several questions to be answered:
• How are we going to motivate and lead this new generation of workers?
• How are we going to capture the vast knowledge from the baby boomers before they leave?
• How will the workplace change in the next 10 years?
