Gray2K : Boomer Retirement = Company Knowledge Void

Dr. Dan: This is what we need “Gray2K” – a clever tagline, something catchy (like Y2K, and with that level of interest).

From Klever (and if you haven’t already discovered Klever, take a look):


“Boomer Retirement = Company Knowledge Void
In the next five years, the so-called Silver Tsunami, or Gray2K, will sweep through every company as baby boomers start retiring en masse, taking with them a collective 3.3 billion years of experience that companies are already finding difficult to regain.  That knowledge is gone forever and the clock is ticking as the workplace collectively scrambles to capture the information before it retires with the employee.”

We wonder why employee engagement levels remain so anemic in today’s organizations.There is hope, however, and perhaps that comes in the form of adding to the definition of collaboration….

Yes, we’ve all seen these kind of things before but I don’t recall seeing one addressing collaboration.  And since collaboration is good and is an activity that results in knowledge sharing (as well as possibly sharing an alcoholic beverage as two along the way) I thought that I’d pass it along.  It just begs “to be” something that you’ll hang on your bulletin board.
