Our population is changingso much that our workforce is going to be hugely impacted over the next ten years or so. All of the Baby Boomers are entering retirement age but continuing to work. So recognizing where the competition will be and where the jobs will be is really important right now.
Workers between the ages of 65-74 years old, will increase by 83% from where it is today. They forecast that workers between the ages of 55-64 years of age, will grow in numbers by 26%.

Talent shortages will be in specific areas too. The major areas where there will be shortages will be in healthcare, education, technology, science engineering, and mathematics.
