Companies that are not bracing for the massive generational management shift that will unfold in the next decade risk falling behind.
According to the Bloomberg Business Week, 10,000 baby boomers — people born between 1946 and 1964 — are reaching retirement age every day. In a survey of HR and IT executives, 24% said that they frequently lose a top manager without a successor lined up.
In Canada, the numbers are just as dramatic. As of 2017, the Globe and Mail reports that for the first time, Canada has more people over the age of 65 than under 15. The boomer age group — 50 to 69 — makes up 27% of the population, compared with 18% in that age group two decades ago.
In light of this massive retirement wave, there has never been a better time to gain the management skills needed to fill the gap. Having a Management Skills certificate on your résumé can help you take the next step in your career and secure the salary to match.
If you are new to a supervisory role, or are looking to launch your career into management, the Management Skills for Supervisors certificate program will help you develop your leadership skills, or refine your existing skills to drive your career to the next level. This part-time certificate program consists of ten core courses and three elective courses designed with supervisory and management professionals in mind.
Elective courses allow you to tailor your education to your career goals or the needs of the organization you represent. Offered in several sections throughout the year, the program design enables you to take courses at varying times during flexible hours to suit your busy schedule.
The Management Skills certificate program includes 9 courses and 3 one-day workshops. Courses and workshops must be completed within three years.
