We’re Living Longer: Is Your Business Ready? Is Your Family Ready?

Presented by Donna Fedus, Gerontologist & Founder of Borrow My Glasses

We live in a time of unprecedented longevity. Never before in history have people lived and functioned so well into their 8th, 9th and 10th decades of life. The longevity trend will impact every business and family, bringing both opportunity and challenges. The issues only get more complex when families work together.

Business owners will gain a significant competitive advantage by considering the implications of the longevity trend. Planning ahead for predictable workforce issues will prevent them from becoming unforeseen emergencies.

Here are just a few of the questions that will be addressed in this interactive workshop:

  • What is the magnitude of the longevity trend?
  • How are needs of our workforce and customers likely to change in the years to come?
  • How do employees meet family caregiving responsibilities? How does caregiving impact the business?
  • Where are opportunities for innovation?
  • Does the management team share the same assumptions about succession planning?
  • How are retirement trends changing? Have we created transition options?
  • In a family business, what do we do if we see a health or cognitive issue in a family member?
  • What resources are available?

Join us to hear new perspectives on the longevity trend and ways you can prepare. Is your business ready for longevity? Is your family ready?
