Crisis in the Making: Mass Exodus = Brain Drain
Abstract:There is a looming crisis facing the water and wastewater industry. Over 79 million “Baby Boomers” will be reaching retirement age in the next ten to fifteen years. This social phenomenon will cause vacancies in our staffing. The paper will explain the extent of the problem and will offer suggestions on how to prevent the loss of corporate knowledge as these “Boomers” leave in large numbers.
The presentation will provide an overview of the problem, why the mass exodus could be a crisis and will offer a list of some twelve ways to avert the crisis. A Power Point presentation will be made and the presentation will be made a part of the proceedings available on disc.
