The paper describes the gap between employers and aging baby boomers and suggests how it can be bridged in a mutually fruitful manner. The paper then touches upon the issue of diversity and reveals that the percentage of those belonging to racial and ethnic minorities is expected to increase. The paper also deals with the issue of immigration and managers' claim that although it is illegal, they need the labor pool of immigrant workers. The paper concludes that regardless of the challenge, the basic criterion for assessing applicants must remain professional competence.
