What impact will the continual rise of baby boomers' retirement have on your company? Today, 80% of baby boomers are still in the workplace, but over the next three years, that number will be drastically reduced by half, leaving only 40% of baby boomers still working. What do we stand to lose along with their retirements? Invaluable tribal knowledge. Many baby boomers are the only employees at their facilities that have certain knowledge, skills, expertise and experience. The question is, how do we keep those things from leaving with the retirees?
Video Work Instructions preserve invaluable tribal knowledge forever. It's not just housed, but utilized by current and new employees whenever you need it. You may be able to hire new employees in place of those retiring, but you can't replace their experience. Let Video Work Instructions help you reserve it, harness it, and use it.
