Preparing for MN’s Older Workforce

Posted on 03/14/18

It’s no secret that Minnesota’s population is aging rapidly and our workforce is declining in size, with potentially seismic impacts on business, industry, and the state’s overall economic health. Given these realities, how can we keep older workers engaged and productive in the workforce, contributing vital skills to help Minnesota thrive in this changing landscape? What are the conversations that need to happen – between employers and employees, and across rural and urban communities – to tackle this growing challenge?

Join the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Policy to explore how these dynamics are uniquely impacting Southwest Minnesota.


  • Moderator Gary Eichten, MPR News Editor-At-Large and Retired Host
  • First-hand accounts of Minnesota employers facing an again workforce
  • Personal stories of Minnesotans wrestling with these changes
  • Next steps and recommendations for employers, community leaders, and more

This event is FREE to attend, but registration is required.
