Company XYZ is an industrial supply company located in a suburb of large Midwestern city and employs approximately 100 employees who are approaching retirement. The organization has structured its benefits to encourage long-term employment. However, when employees are over 55 Company XYZ does not currently offer ongoing training opportunities for the mature worker. This study was conducted to determine if Company XYZ's mature workers, age 55 and older who are currently employed or retired, are satisfied with the existing training as well as determine their level of engagement as they near retirement. Based on the results, recommendations were made to help the organization provide the training necessary to keep the mature worker engaged with their job until they retire.
