Training Older Workers: Implications for HRD/HPT Professionals

Training Older Workers: Implications for HRD/HPT Professionals

Date: 1998
Creator: Allen, Jeff M. & Hart, Marcy
Description: This article discusses training older workers. In corporations across America, a race is on to find new ways to maximize human capital. An emphasis on lifelong learning will be vital for the success of our future workforce. As demographic shifts occur, the "older worker" will emerge as a primary target for this human development effort. This article explores the implications of this demographic shift for the human resource development and human performance technology (HRD/HPT) professional and recommends strategies for meeting this business need. First, the authors discuss the realities of this demographic shift and compare our current workforce demographics to those of the future. Next, the authors examine the common myths about the "older worker", as well as what current research reports about this special population. Finally, the authors examine the impact of this trend on our profession. The authors discuss strategies for modifying the workplace environment, reassessing workforce motivational strategies, and altering training practices in order to serve this older worker population. In conclusion, the authors look at the implications for the future in HRD/HPT research.

Utilization of Technology-Enhanced Delphi Techniques

Utilization of Technology-Enhanced Delphi Techniques

Date: 2002
Creator: Andrews, Charles G. & Allen, Jeff M.
Description: This article discusses the Delphi consensus-building technique. Also discussed are the Delphi Technique's history, the process, and some advantages and disadvantages found in the literature. Finally, this article examines a technology-enhanced version of the process. The study provides researchers interested in using the Delphi Technique in conjunction with technology with a process that is easily duplicated. Nine university professors/instructors agreed to address one question: "What information should the student be aware of when working on a team project?" The question is unimportant. However, the results of the Delphi consensus regarding this single question are provided, along with a framework for conducting future Delphi studies, using computer technology. Cost savings and time reduction are important advantages to be considered when conducting a Technology-Enhanced Delphi study using computer technology.
