Careerminds New Program: Evergreen
Careerminds is proud to announce our new virtual retirement planning program: Evergreen.
By 2030, one in five Americans will be older than 65 and our population is also living longer than ever before. With 78 million baby boomers preparing to retire in the next 20 years, the mass exodus of an organization’s most tenured workforce is poised to become the next big HR challenge.
A recent USA today article provided research on the challenges facing retirees as they plan their exit from the workforce. Money is only part of the puzzle when it comes to things boomers are concerned about when retiring. The study found that the thing boomers miss the most when retiring is actually the social connections that come with working everyday, either virtually or in an office, not money.
Evergreen helps our clients in managing retirement succession planning early, and can be applied in two situations:
-To phase retirements for existing employees expressing an interest in retiring in the next 5 years so they can stay on to mentor the new workforce or continue to contribute, but not necessarily full time
– Offering voluntary retirement or outplacement in conjunction with retirement planning for tenured employees in transition, but who still may be interested in finding a job with less responsibility, part-time hours, or volunteering.
Our Evergreen Retirement program was born out of a need expressed by existing clients who wanted to offer a retirement transition program instead of just outplacement. The program offers a holistic view of retirement through a validated retirement assessment tool that identifies gaps across several major categories. Participants have a dedicated coaching resource in our certified retirement planning specialists (who are all also career coaches!).
“We’re excited about the new program and how it integrates with our proprietary technology. Combining retirement planning with a job search enables our participants to explore what the next phase of their life will look like. Whether they need to find a job with less responsibility or less hours, or find out they are ready to retire all together, we can meet that need ”, says Raymond Lee, Careerminds CEO. This program will help employees determine the necessary steps they need to take to have a successful retirement in all aspects of their life, including financial, social, and healthcare planning.
