The objective of a Post-Retirement Collaboration program is to raise the awareness of senior employees regarding the value of their expertise, in order to be able to call on them for help once they’ve retired. The program also needs to make the talent pool visible to operational managers so they can use it as needed.
The framework of Post-Retirement Collaboration must be clearly defined and communicated so as to be understood by employees and management who will be calling on young retirees. This includes the rules (what kind of work, who can apply, how long …) and the oversight mechanism, the interactions with other social and HR policies.
Communication with pre-retirement senior employees will include a chapter on Post-Retirement Collaboration when appropriate, so eligible staff can make contact with Experconnect to plan for their future post-retirement work.
