State Chamber Initiates Aging Workforce Study

June 10, 2009

WORKFORCE WISE is the title of a new statewide research, education and advocacy initiative of the Indiana State Chamber of Commerce Foundation.

Among data sets being employed for the project is the AdvantAge Initiative 2008 statewide survey of 5,000 older Hoosiers, conducted by the Center on Aging and Community at the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community.
