This session presented RTW strategies as a follow-up to the findings from the Cornell Study on the Aging Workforce. Disability currently costs employers approximately 8-15% of payroll and these costs are expected to increase up to 37% in the next 10 years due to the ramifications of the aging population. Not only does the aging population represent significant disability costs, they also represent vital skills and experience. Employers are increasingly looking for ways to maintain the productivity of their aging workforce. A productive aging program can help employers to preserve the skills and experience of the older worker as well as minimize disability costs. Unum and Cornell shared their perspectives and how the latest research reflects implications of an aging work force including and practical solutions for preserving the health and productivity of the older worker.
