The Impacts of an Aging Engineering Workforce: a SolidProfessor Webinar
Engineering jobs are on the rise, with mechanical engineering employment expected to increase 5.3% by 2024. However, 21% of the current mechanical engineering workforce is over the age of 55.
In the near future, employers will face the significant hurdles of not only filling positions, but filling skills gaps left by retiring, seasoned employees. Companies are at risk of losing vital collective wisdom, or tribal knowledge, among aging engineers that may be known, but not written.
In this webinar recording, you’ll learn about:
The economic impact of an aging workforce coupled with industry growth
The critical value of tribal knowledge among older engineers and how to capture and preserve collective wisdom for the whole team
Preparing your engineering team and training the incoming workforce for leadership and success after 55+ employees retire
