The US workforce grew at a rate of 30% in the 1970s, and at 12% in the 1990s through the present. But it's expected to slow to about 3% and to level off by 2010. The grey-haired demographics aren't limited to the US . The number of workers aged 35 to 44 is expected to decline by 27% in Germany, 19% in the UK and 9% in Italy. In Japan, that age group is expected to shrink by 10%, and by 8% in China. To survive this crisis, companies must stop hiding under the duvet and start preparing for it now. Three tactics they can implement are: 1. Understand how the looming human capital crisis will affect them, 2. Build a strong customer profile. 3. Create razor-sharp marketing campaigns geared specifically to building long term relationships.
