The Knowledge Brain Drain

At the September 12th KM Chicago meeting, Rickie Tinimbang will present his master's Capstone research on The Knowledge Brain Drain. Mr. Tinimbang is interested in the problem of the retiring workforce, as senior employees leave companies due to retirement, leaving a smaller workforce with less experience. How will this impact the companies they leave? What can businesses do about it?

One option is to ensure knowledge transfer from the senior staff to junior staff through mentoring programs. Mr. Tinimbang will report on the mentoring program at a leading Fortune 500 company that specializes in risk management and consulting services.

Mr. Tinimbang is about to complete his Master's of Learning and Organizational Change at Northwestern. He is Administrator and Chief Operating Officer for Donnarich Home Health Care Inc., a provider of home healthcare services based in Lincolnwood, Illinois.

Please join us at our usual locations, Factiva's offices in the Loop or Allstate's offices in Northbrook from 5-7 pm. (Mr. Tinimbang will be at the Allstate location.) Details for the locations and dialing into the phone bridge are in the sidebar.
