I had a really interesting conversation with someone last week that got me thinking about a major issue once you retire. Once you don’t have a ‘job’, how do you make sure your network knows you are still active, up for opportunities and very much part of the working world?
Last week I ran a workshop for some of EY’s most senior partners who will be retiring in the next year or two – on LinkedIn and Strategic Networking. It is a joy to be working in my old firm and a reminder of just how bright and interesting these people are – it was very motivating working with them!
There is a (very small) sea change happening among employers as to their roles and responsibilities towards a retiring employee. Here I want to look at what that change is, some leaders in the field such as the construction industry – and the areas where employers may want to start rethinking the opportunities of retiring employees.
