The Sloan Center on Aging & Work at Boston College has announced that it has launched a searchable database of summaries of innovative practices from industry sectors such as health care, pharmaceutical, financial services, education and manufacturing. The Innovative Practice Database has been released with 26 summaries of organizational responses to the business challenges, innovative strategies and competitive solutions associated with multi-generational workforce issues.
The cases highlight employers’ strategic goals and programs that respond to today’s age diversity. The Sloan Center works with the participating employers to select focal areas of strategic value and current interest to businesses. In addition to launching the database, the Center is seeking to grow it by soliciting other organizations to provide it with examples of their own innovative practices.
The database can be browsed by case/organization or can be searched by word, staff size, United States or international, industry sector, business driver (such as business costs/ROI, employee engagement, and career development), and profit or non-profit.
