Retirement planning

At their farewell speeches newly dubbed retirees are often expected to share some of their plans for their newfound "freedom".

Everyone expects new retirees to have lots of plans in place, either for exciting new adventures, or to rest and recuperate for a while after a demanding career.

People at retirement age are now fitter and healthier than they have ever been before, and times have changed dramatically since our parents' day, when retirement was a time to spend with family and friends, and generally puddle about in our twilight years.

Nowadays it's a time to do all the things we didnt' get to do before, as well as some of the puddling about... if there's the time or the inclination!

More and more people are realising that once retired from full-time work, they still have a lot to give in the way of skills and experience, and a lot of energy to move on to new projects, or take up old ones that were put aside.

As career consultants we are trained and experienced in helping people through lifestyle changes as well as career and work change.


What is a career?

The concept of "career" is becoming increasingly fluid - as life enters new phases and circumstances add to a person's situation, so the need for guidance arises at various times in a person's life. Therefore it is entirely appropriate to consider career counselling as an incredibly useful tool gong into retirement.

A parting gift
Transition support.

As an employer who is saying farewell to a highly valued staff member, this is a golden opportunity to help them move on to the next stage in their lives. 

You may be concerned the person retiring does not seem to have plans in place, or that there is some anxiety for them about the retirement process.

Alternatively, you might just wish to provide your retiring staff member(s) with an exciting opportunity to stand back and think about their future a bit differently with an independent, and objective, listener. 

What a wonderful gift to give a valued staff member!
