Event Description:
Transition to Retirement: Initiating, Planning & Implementing

Speakers: Lynn Unger, Senior Consultant, People First Career Management & Liz Bilton, Client Services Lead, People First HR Services

Progressive employers recognize the importance of helping valued team members make the decision to retire, and supporting them once they've done so, through succession and retirement planning.
Leaders within an organization often have discomfort approaching the subject of retirement and/or succession planning. Lynn Unger, Senior Consultant with People First Career Management, will lead you through strategies to consider when employees are nearing retirement, including how to engage in the appropriate dialogue to discuss retirement, establish a corporate succession plan and provide retirement planning support.
Today's retirement is a redirection of energy, purpose and experience. It is embarking on an exciting new journey through unknown territory, and with it comes planning and preparation that goes beyond financial considerations.
Ultimately, 90% of people say that retirement is not what they thought it would be and 70% are not prepared for the emotional side of retirement.  Lynn will outline some of the important considerations those planning for retirement will be facing and how your organization can support them.
Providing support to help your employees embark on a purposeful retirement differentiates your organization as a superior employer, improves engagement and demonstrates that you care about your employees now and into the future
