Baby Boomer Tool Kit

Tap into the “best kept secret” labour pool in our industry.

Regardless of the state of the economy, finding and keeping good employees is an ongoing challenge for any organization.

Employers who remember the last round of severe labour shortages will recall the difficulty in finding adequate staff, and in some regions of the province it was nearly impossible. These labour pains are being felt again in BC, and they are projected to worsen over the next 10 years. The adage “there is no time like the present” is certainly fitting when considering the development and implementation of hiring strategies that could effectively deal with the current and emerging labour challenges.

The go2HR Baby Boomer Tool Kit  aims to help BC tourism and hospitality operators to create strategies to diversify workforce demographics to lessen the impact of current and emerging labour shortages. It contains information and tools that will help your business leverage this currently under-utilized and growing labour pool: the “baby boomer” generation.

Baby Boomer Tool Kit

The Baby Boomer Tool Kit includes:

  • The business case and benefits of hiring baby boomers
  • BC employer success stories
  • Checklists & resources
