CSG TORCH shutterstock_4720285

Forbes has predicted that this year we will see a lot of “boomers” retire. Eighteen percent (18%) of them have plans to retire within five years.  Sixty-eight (68%) percent of HR professionals say that this will have a tremendous impact on the business community.  Right now, millennials account for thirty-six (36%) of the American workforce.

This is good news for Gen X’ers and Y’ers, but only if the new generation is adequately trained to take on the responsibilities a company needs. Currently, succession planning is key for many companies.  Gen X’ers and Y’ers can start preparing now for the retirement boom that is before them.

CSG is here to help coach and prepare you for the big leagues. The need for a seamless transition in leadership and responsibilities within a company is increasing. Companies are preparing for the “boomers” to retire, and the Gen X’ers and Y’ers can get a jump-start to be primed and ready to be THE one the company calls upon. CSG is here to help you be more than ready. We want to talk with you and learn about your experience and determine which company and opportunity is right for you and your professional goals.
