As 5.5 million ageing workers reach and approach retirement age, we are facing a crucial turning point in the workforce. Are you and your ageing employees ready for their transition into retirement?
Retirement can be one of the most anticipated life-changing life events in a person’s life. But while many people look forward to retirement at different times in their life, with usually fifty plus years in the workforce, the thought of suddenly not working can be fraught with many concerns.
As an employer, you have the opportunity of helping your ageing workforce make a smooth and fulfilling transition into retirement, and you have the challenge of ensuring your organisation is stronger after they leave.
This challenge can be made harder by the need to exercise caution when talking to employees about their retirement plans. But the way around this can be providing employees with the support they need to consider all of the options available to them and a readily available retirement program for those who are planning their exit from the workforce.
Our Pathways to Retirement Program offers practical advice for transitioning employees and helps them plan effectively for retirement and review future employment options with the support of a career coach.
