v    Description:
·                    Are you planning to retire soon, and feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the things your replacement will need to know? Who will be able to train someone to do what you do?
·                    Do you have co-workers who are planning to retire or who are actively seeking other employment? Do you worry that they’ll be taking a lot of important knowledge with them when they go?
·                    Are you a leader who is foreseeing the ‘brain drain’ that will occur when the wave of Baby Boomer retirements is being fully felt? What will happen when all that organizational knowledge walks out the door? And what will happen when you leave?
Whether you are a senior leader in your organization or you have a job with some unique responsibilities at any level, you may be thinking about what it will take to replace your knowledge, skills, and wisdom. And if you’re not thinking about it, you should be! The wave of Baby Boomer retirements is beginning, and those employees who know why things work as well as the way things work will be leaving our libraries. How can we make sure we know the important things they’ve learned over the years?

After this webinar, participants will be able to identify:


·                  Two kinds of organizational knowledge and why each is important
·                    Strategies their organizations can use to facilitate knowledge transfer
·                    A strategy they can use personally to ensure that their critical knowledge is available to others

This webinar will be of interest to anyone who is thinking about retirement, or who may actively be seeking other employment. Co-workers of those who are planning to leave will be interested, too. The webinar may be of special interest to those who manage and train staff.
