Counting Greys

Business managers and executives in the defense/aerospace industry are keenly aware of the age-range issue. Bringing in young talent to replace the wave of retiring professionals has been an area of interest for years and has gained some media interest.

While attracting talent is important, there is very little discussion on how to keep these young folks in the business. This is becoming increasingly important as advanced technology is no longer a niche defense capability. The next 5-10 years may see higher rotations, particularly amongst engineers, migrating to competing industries such as IT and software engineering.
