Research for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on the Voice of Business on the Mature Workforce
Research on the challenges of an aging population and workforce.
In 2005, the Heldrich Center worked closely with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its Center for Workforce Preparation to look closely at the challenges its members were facing in light of an aging population and workforce. The Heldrich Center provided Chamber members with advance findings of a nationwide survey on retirement options as part of their “Voice of Business on the Mature Workforce” conference. The final report, A Work-Filled Retirement, attracted widespread national and international media attention when it was released. The Heldrich Center also helped the Center for Workforce Preparation draft the conference’s final recommendations for the White House Conference on Aging.
