Knowledge Management the solution to ageing work force!
I recently read an article called 'Commentary: Knowledge management for a graying work force'. Of course much of what was said there was something we all know already. Although the article takes a look at the situations in government organizations and bodies, the observations and solutions given here is applicable for any industry. I specially liked the solutions provided here and notice that better HR practices combined with a robust KM system goes a long way providing a solution for an ageing workforce. The article explains how replacement employee pipeline, retirement options, succession plans and knowledge management systems help mitigate the risk of employee attrition. All this sounds great but how many organizations have their KM team talking and working closely with their HR department? Hmmm...love to hear from anyone on this if this happens in their organizations.
