Helping mature employee transition to retiremen

Plan for successful transition to retirement

Our transition to retirement program helps older employees prepare for career change

Retirement need not be an on/off switch in terms of a person’s career. Retirement career planning is an opportunity to evaluate and plan a rewarding balance of work and leisure.

With our support, your retirees can depart with confidence to enjoy a satisfying lifestyle that involves an element of enjoyable work.

Why plan for a career after retirement?

For many, retirement is more about enjoying work and a more relaxed lifestyle rather than giving up on employment completely.

Our career transition to retirement program delivers practical support to your employees, helping them to identify and overcome obstacles preventing them from choosing this option.

We offer emotional support to reduce anxiety about change, and strategies for identifying and securing a successful post-retirement role.

Benefits for employers

Retirement planning also benefits organisations. It:

  • Encourages the planned transition of an ageing workforce and retains intellectual and industry knowledge.
  • Paves the way for individuals to progress into roles held by departing employees, as part of a succession planning strategy.
  • Cultivates the goodwill of retirees, other employees and the community by showing your concern for departing workers.
