  27. 27ConclusionConclusionConclusionConclusionWhat I have learned from conducting and developing this survey were as follows:What I have learned from conducting and developing this survey were as follows:I discovered a website where Jacquelyn B. James, PhDCo-Director of Research,Primary Data Studies Sloan Center on Aging & Work, Boston CollegeResearch ProfessorLynch School of Education, Boston College, wrote an article for usnews.com that stated“Employees ages 55 to 65 "are the fastest-growing component of the workforce,"Tugman says.” They represent significant skills and experiences," she adds.Employers dont want to lose this expertise and many are developing or expandingmentoring programs to help older employees transfer skills to younger colleagues.Beyond mentoring, however, prospective labor-force shortages mean many employerssimply cannot afford to let older workers retire or walk out the door.”There are no trained replacements for them, young or old and employers plan tohire retired employees as consultants or temporary workers, offer flexible workarrangements and design part-time positions to attract older workers .http://money.usnews.com/money/I also learn that the Silent Generation are re-entering the workforcenot for job title, higher pay or perks but to increase their nest-eggaccording to a online Department of Labor report.Last but not least The Silent Generation and some Baby Boomer( if they don’t already have them) need technical training to keepup with the requirements of today’s job market .
