Shifting Work for Older Workers: two really interesting pieces

I came upon two good piece this week on designing workplaces in a demographic shift. The first is a case study from BMW, compliments of HBR on how they engaged their line team members to design a Year 2017 assembly line, which turned out to be just as productive as any other BMW factory:

Then, compliments of Freakonomics, an academic paper on Labor Market Rigidities. http://web.econ.ohio-state.edu/~blau/docs/lmr_paper_revision_for_ilrr6.pdf
(I think the paper is a little narrow in focus, not allowing for humans being humans – example: a mother in law who couldn’t wait to retire, she wanted to spend time with her grandkids…)
