THIS WEEK’S BUSINESS PRESS POLL QUESTION
Log on to the Las Vegas Business Press Web site and let us hear your opinion on this week’s question.
A new study by Hewitt Associates found 61 percent of U.S. companies have or are developing programs that let workers retire in stages. Among the ways they are doing this is to let more retirement-age workers stay on as part-timers or as telecommuters.
Among the companies surveyed, the reason most cited for the new programs was that they helped companies retain the experience and skills of their baby boomer employees.
Does your company have any programs in place to let its baby boomer employees delay their retirement?
