Statement of Topic
Kiyonaga (2004) suggests, “the aging of the largest generation the United States has ever
known will affect every social institution from employment to health care. Precisely what the
impact will be is, like all future events, still a matter of prediction. That there will be a major
impact is not” (p. 357). This paper will seek to provide a perspective on the aging of the
workforce with specific attention given to; the potential roles available for the aging worker, the
training available and offered the aging worker, explore implications for the organization and
finally the role the strategic HR function plays in propelling the organization forward in dealing
with this issue.

contributor to workplace violence in the public sector. Public Personnel
Management, 30(2), 185. Retrieved from
This article contributes significant and relevant statistics which confirm the pervasiveness of
violent incidents in general. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)
found that 20 persons were murdered at work every week. Nationally, homicide is the second
highest overall cause of workplace-related deaths; for female workers, homicide is the leading
cause of workplace deaths. Workplace violence now accounts for 15 percent of the more than 6.5
million violent acts experienced by U. S. residents who are age 12 or older. (para 7). Kondrasuk
provides information also related to a suggested cause or contributor to the violence – negligent
hiring practices. Numerous suggestions are given throughout the materials researched for the
paper, giving additional thought to the causes of workplace violence. However, Kondrasuk gives
weight to not only a passing platitude, but supports the concept of negligent hiring with law and
concurrent tort law claims.
Smith, S. (2002). Workplace violence. Professional Safety, 47(11), 34. Retrieved from
Smith (2002) gives critical analysis to the topic of workplace violence and highlights how ill
prepared most U.S. companies are when faced with the reality of violence. In the research, she
provides several real world examples of workplace violence, the behavioral backgrounds and
pre-incident behaviors of the employees committing the violent acts. Smith (2002) further
contends that, “employers have both a legal duty and moral obligation to provide a safe
workplace” (p. 39). In addition to this insight the article contributes to the impact, causes and
prevention of workplace violence. The suggestions are pliable to most any organization.
