Ageing snapshot: The greying government workforce

Government services NFP

As the baby boomer generation now reaches retirement, there will be significant implications for most sectors in economies of the developed world. Few sectors are more highly impacted by the ageing population than government. On the one hand, policymakers must develop public policies and programs to ensure everything from adequate health care for seniors to better transit options. Government itself faces a rapidly ageing workforce: the civil service is ageing more quickly than other sectors.

This report discusses what effects the talent gap will have on governmental institutions and what strategies should be taken to soften the impact.

Managing the implications of an ageing population is a high priority for Deloitte member firms. This report is part of the Deloitte Government Services industry group's "Ageing Snapshots" series (link instead to Ageing Health and Welfare Article), a collection of briefs that examine issues and challenges related to the ageing population.
