Since our founding in 2005, the Center has successfully collaborated with business leaders and their representatives in employer-engaged research, such as scholarly investigations, outreach campaigns, and learning circles, to facilitate organizational efforts to adapt to shifting workforce age demographics.  For us, this means a commitment to translating evidence-based research for the workplace as well as linking the knowledge, experience, and desires of practitioners to the design of research studies.

Employers can participate in our research in several capacities, such as advising research questions and design, providing site access for data collection, and participating in case studies and interviews.
