Millions of baby boomers worldwide, aged above 50 will be leaving their jobs in the next few years as they retire from the workforce. This unprecedented wave of baby boomer retirement, which has attracted plenty of media attention, is hitting Hong Kong now and will continue into the next 10 years. Many baby boomers have spent their entire career, or high portion of them in one organization. Besides their own expertise, they have also accumulated a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience about how mechanisms work, how tasks got done, and who to contact when issues and weak signals emerge. In many cases, this practice and decision making knowledge is extremely difficult to replicate because it has been developed in an era of unprecedented technological advances and complex business landscape.

Join us for this talk which will outline some measures organizations can adopt in order to retain critical know-how and reduce knowledge loss due to staff retirement. Supplemented with case examples, the speakers will share some solutions on enabling knowledge sharing and retention in an organization.
