More professional then go right back to work after retirement

Eighteen months ago, Tom Harvey retired. But then he changed his mind this year and decided to return to active duty. He's not alone. In the United Kingdom, according to a survey on aging and society, 25% of retirees return to work, and about half of those within five years after retirement. The study defined non-retired those who "reported to be retired and began working again in a paid job, or started a full-time job after partial retirement (working less than 30 hours per week)".
A 2010 study found similar rates in the United States. This research suggests that retirement may not be a permanent condition. Instead, it is a process. For Harvey, your retirement a few years before the legal age in the United Kingdom, of 65 years, was highly desirable after decades in corporate life-first in the field of advertising and then in the area of financial services. This gave him the chance to take the dogs for a walk and practice riding. But your brain claimed by stimuli.
"You miss the intellectual involvement of labour and the discussions around difficult problems," he says. The financial aspect is also important. "It's always good to have more money." Today, this man of 63 years is offering consulting services to small businesses, especially in communication for directors and senior officials.
Their reaction reflects that of other people, says Loretta Platts, the Stress Research Institute of Stockholm University, and co-author of the report. "Some people suffer a shock retirement. It's not what they thought it would be. " The study defined retirement as people claiming to be "retired" from their main activities. Loretta Platts says that some people can disagree and fix that in an age, maybe more than 65 years.
In the United Kingdom, the number of people between 50 and 64 years of age who work has increased from 60 percent in 2000 to 71 percent, according to the National Statistics Agency, while the number of people on active duty who have beyond 65 years has doubled to about 10%.
In the United States, the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that for the period up to 2024, the two groups with ages of 65-74 and over 75 years presenting the highest growth rates of the workforce annually, than all other age groups. In response to the additional costs to live longer, many Governments are increasing the retirement age.
Robert Roy, based in Washington, the retirement to 69 years was attractive because it "finished what he was doing. It was intense. " His career in social work with children and families had been rewarding. But after your last job as Chief Executive of a nonprofit organization that works to support the families in Portland, he felt the need to take a break.
After leaving the Organization, Roy devoted your time to fish and write. But felt that something was missing. "I thought: ' what is my reason for living? '". The job was fun. "When you work, your days are defined. When you take that all of a sudden, will replace with what? What's next? What am I going to do? "
Therefore, Roy decided to leave retirement. He always felt uncomfortable with the term retired because it's as if he'd already checked out. "I haven't felt like this. I didn't want to feel that it was over for me. " Today, he works two days a week at the Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center, in the area of mental health services, and is a consultant to nonprofit organizations that provide treatment to troubled kids and their families.
It looks good for this gentleman of 79 years, because it means that he has time to spend with the family. He made the change thanks to the Encore Fellowship, a scheme run by an American NGO that helps experienced professionals, usually in the homes of 50 or 60 years, who want to switch to a career in the area of public services.
The Encore helps fill a gap in training. An article published in "Public Policy and Ageing Report" in 2015 stated that retain older workers means increasing the opportunities for training and development for those who are in the range of 50 years. The current lack of training options for older workers is due in part to the attitude of line managers and employers.
According to the report, individuals can also feel that after a certain age or stage of their careers, more training would be unnecessary. Or that the learning that they should receive is inappropriate given your level of experience and skills.
Another report published last week by Business in the Community "urges employers to make more of an effort to train older workers and prepare them for the digital economy. David Sinclair, Director of the International Longevity Centre UK, said the stereotype about older workers is that they are unreliable: "It feeds an image that they are safe and steady, when in fact people can innovate throughout life".
For Harvey and Roy, retirement was interesting because they wanted to take a pause in work requirements. "It's a shame that organizations are not more sophisticated in identifying the stress," says Harvey. He suggests that they could help employees who may need to take a little time and taking a few months off. "
Developments such as work at home and the flexible hours are also promising, he adds. Lynda Gratton, a Professor of management practice at the London Business School and co-author of "The 100-Year Life," do you think that employers should let people work as long as they can. But they should be more creative with the direction of his career. The staff will want to take a short break from time to time to rejuvenate and learn a new skill ". She also believes that workers need to better plan their professional lives.
Loretta Platts thinks this change of employment to retirement and back to work is a reflection of the short sightedness of the employers. Many fail to keep their employees, mainly because I couldn't find flexible functions for them. "This is important because older people have more trouble getting a job. The higher the range, the harder it is to get back to work. "
Harvey says it's not easy to find a job: "When you have gray hair and wears glasses, often people get apprehensive about having to work with someone 20 years older. The ageism exists ". This is not the case with Jacky Beare, who retired at 55 years at Marks Spencer in 2015 & after working as sales manager.
This year she went back to work, under contract, as sales assistant. Works five days a week from 11:00 to 3:00 pm. Jacky continues in the professional world and haven't lost their commercial skills. And a new reason to return to active duty has been cited by some non-retirees of the United Kingdom: the uncertainty brought by the Brexit was a factor in the decision of Jacky. "I'm fine now, but might not be," she says.
