This chapter will address the graying of the workplace which is forcing a paradigm shift in workplace hiring policies. The “baby boomers” generation with their large number in population and years of work experience play a large role in shaping the American workplace. As this large group of workers is aging, managers are faced with the need for greater understanding of not only how to accept but also how to reskill and integrate emerging workplace technologies into this older and experienced workforce. Additionally, HR researchers have suggested that organizations undergo a cultural shift in order to develop ways to compete globally using technology. There have been several articles regarding creating people advantage since 2011. Understanding the benefits of creating people advantage within organizations will be described in this chapter.
