Firms Not Planning for Booming Retirements


Almost 40% of companies have made no projections about the retirement rate of their employees and more than 25% have not even analyzed their work force demographics, which might unexpectedly jeopardize employer success, according to The Center on Aging and Work/Workplace Flexibility at Boston College.

The study found that, although employers held a particular interest in the retirement forecasts of their older workers, only one-third had made projections about retirement to a great (10%) or moderate extent (24%).
