Nobody is discussing a labor shortage nowadays. There is lots of banter on the way to manage GenY's, and Millennials. But a forgotten group of people could be the Zoomers -- the "50 plus" generation. Media innovator Moses Znaimer developed a new method to view the "50 plus."

"The population bubble which was the youth market Three decades ago is, today, the market industry I've defined as Zoomers," says Znaimer. "They were the dominant generation then... they remain the dominant generation now. Zoomers really are a growing, vibrant and affluent community. They are on the world with optimism; they're engaged and aspire to enrich their lives and also the lives of these communities."

Zoomers encompass both the Middle-agers (ages 44 to 62) and the ones older.

It's really a vast group -- 14.5 million, accounting for 44 per cent of the population, and controlling a lot more than 77 per cent of most Canadian wealth. they probably control many of the wealth in America and Europe too.

Investigating more interesting statistics that tell the intellectual prowess of Zoomers:

The fastest growing demographic on Facebook is still women over 55 -- now there are nearly 1.5 million of these participating in Facebook month after month.
There have to do with 4.Six million Facebook users 45 -- 54, and two.8 million over 55. Facts these intellectually vibrant folks are growing everyday.

Well, many of them. The fact is, there are tons of exhausted Zoomers on the market just waiting to emerge from the shackles from the corporate tread mill. Keep in mind that, them all some time in my are a company psychologist.

And therein will be the challenge for leaders and managers. Many Zoomers feel expected to stay working since their nest egg have reduced terribly. Other people are still looking to work, maybe in another way than we did 25 -- 3 decades ago but work still provides plenty of meaning.

Could you just forget about having to pay special care about training, motivating, and fascinating your Zoomer employees? They should be happy only to still have a job, right? Absolutely no way.

An excellent Disruption has resulted in us to hunker down and check out our very best to keep our jobs. I take advantage of the initial person here because I'm 66 and am still very involved in the working world on Twitter, LinkedIn, creating articles for ezines, producing vlogs, blogging, webinars, virtual book tours and iPhone apps.

Zoomers have been around in businesses for years. We've got lots of experience -- the excellent, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful -- to contribute. We grew up thinking the entire world was our oyster. We're disappointed while at the same time living a most affluent life interrupted by periods of important anxieties about what's happening to world -- both personally and globally.

So a manager must be aware that a still employed Zoomer knows the ropes, how to work the machine, has seen management fads -- and managers -- appear and disappear.

S/he is really a sometimes "crusty" element to deal with on the job. Be respectful. Demand a Zoomer's input (we are reluctant at first because we have been asked often times, just to be prevented).

Zoomers show up on time. Were resentful of GenY's and Millennials who will be more casual in regards to the timepiece. So managers you'll have to be very skilled at managing conflict between your generations. As a skilful negotiator you'll have to discover how to incorporate the divergent values with the generations.

Managers need to outline your expectations clearly to Zoomers. The alive, bright, ambitious ones will require to that. The laggards will resent you. You'll have to stay this course while not alienating them. One on one's can function well to shift a disengaged Zoomer right into a more committed employee. Zoomers will be more accustomed to acquiescing to authority than GenY's or Millennials. Do it in private to nuture the Zoomer's self-respect.
