Research to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on their Voice of Business on the Mature Workforce

In 2005, the Heldrich Center worked closely with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its Center for Workforce Preparation (CWP) to look more closely at challenges its members were facing in light of an aging U.S. population and aging workforce. During this engagement, the Heldrich Center provided Chamber members with advance findings of a nationwide survey on retirement options as part of their ‘Voice of Business on the Mature Workforce’ conference. The final report, A Work-Filled Retirement, attracted widespread national and international media attention when it was released in August. The Center also helped CWP draft the conference’s final recommendations for the upcoming White House Conference on Aging.
