We explored how organizations can continue to thrive as workforce demographics change in response to population aging.
The global population is aging rapidly, significantly impacting how organizations worldwide attract, retain, and retire talent. At the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos in January, we are convening stakeholders committed to building resilient multigenerational workforces in alignment with one of meetings key thematic priorities of creating growth and jobs for a new era.
On Wednesday 17 January 2024, Martine Ferland, Chief Executive Officer, Mercer and Rich Nuzum, Chief Investment Strategist, Mercer, led a panel discussion to explore how organizations can continue to thrive as workforce demographics change in response to population aging - including redefining retirement, evolving jobs, and skill-building to enable longer careers and supporting employees to be financially resilient and healthier throughout their longer lives.
This session builds on the collaborative effort between Mercer and the World Economic Forum on the Longevity Economy Initiative, which fosters public-private collaboration in addressing the demographic and financial implications of global aging by uniquely focusing on the longevity economy's impact on the workforce.
