Two new resources help with the final months leading up to retirement and planning ahead to create a life of meaning after retirement. Retirement and the Retiree Interview Form help capture the knowledge and expertise that may be lost when employees retire from your organization. Taking these steps can also help employees retire with a greater sense of pride and accomplishment.
Retiring Well and the Questionnaire provide a series of questions to help proactively plan to the quality of life each individual desires in retirement. These resources are not about financial planning. They focus instead on the quality of life before and after retirement. Use them in your workplace for anyone considering retirement or share them with friends and family who can benefit.
