Global Workforce Trends reported that by the end of 2017, 3.6 million baby boomers will retire. As they do, more and more millennials will begin transitioning into management roles.  And behind the millennials is the even younger generation –  Generation Z – who are on track to make up 27% by 2030. With a shift in the workforce upon us, what can organizations learn about these new trends to better prepare?
