The coming "age wave" of retiring Baby Boomers will have a dramatic effect on American business, as well as on society's views of aging and the older worker. This article presents an overview of demographic trends and their implications for the workplace and the aging worker of tomorrow. It includes a description of best practices gained through a three-year specialized job placement program for the older worker developed by the Jewish Vocational Service of MetroWest called Maturity Work and concludes with a commentary on special needs populations.
