Summit on the Aging Workforce
The Edmonton Chamber of Commerce in partnership with CPHR Alberta is proudly hosting the “Summit on the Aging Workforce” on Thursday, June 8, 2023 at The Westin Edmonton. Attracting and supporting a diverse workforce is key to the success of any business. With widespread labour and workforce talent shortages threatening growth and sustainability, many organizations are looking at their recruitment and retention strategies. Mature workers, those that are 55 years or older, make up nearly 20% of the labour force and can help offset existing and future labour shortages, and mentor younger workers. Some older workers face barriers to remaining employed, re-entering the labour force, or delaying retirement.
During this full day conference, you will hear from a panel of experts, keynote speakers, and business leaders on the future of the aging workforce. It will be hosted both in-person and virtually and is ideal for business leaders, HR professionals, not for profits, researchers and policy makers.
The Keynote speakers are scheduled to be:
- Laura Tamblyn Watts- CEO of CanAge, Canada’s national seniors’ advocacy organization who teaches Law and Aging at the University of Toronto and is a regular media guest and keynote speaker on aging issues.
- Graham Lowe- President of Graham Lowe Group Inc, a professor emeritus at the University of Alberta and author of ‘Creating Healthy Organizations’ and ‘The Quality of Work: A People-Centered Agenda’.
Additional conference details will be released in the coming weeks.
