The BIG question: What is your purpose after retirement? 

Your next 20 or 30 years are FULL of untapped opportunities for you. 

But, according to research, here's what happens to MILLIONS of people just like you who have no detailed retirement transition plan or struggle with their new identity as a "retiree:" they suddenly take a long, hard look at where they are and realize they don't know what to do next.  

  • They don't want to feel bored, irrelevant, no longer needed, or simply isolated after retirement...but they often slip into feeling this way. 
  • They experience a 40% increased risk of depression. 
  • They experience a 60% increased chance of being diagnosed with a serious illness.

Our program founders conducted interviews with over 100 Baby Boomers revealed that all of us have a deep desire for: 

  • "A community of people who really understand me and fully support what I want to do during this phase of my life"  
  • "A clear process: a roadmap that helps me structure my life to get exactly what I want, not what anyone else THINKS I should want or should do" 
  • "Ongoing resources that give me the support and the methods to re-invent my life as I choose"  

That's why we created The Encore Program for you.

ENCORE CORPORATE

WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT YOUR AGING WORKFORCE?

  • 10,000 Baby Boomers retire every day in the USA 
  • 1/3 of today’s workforce are Baby Boomers  
  • HR professionals are scrambling to curb the damage caused by massive employee exodus 
  • In one company alone, 700 retirements will mean the loss of over 27,000 years of experience  


THREE KEY CHALLENGES

1. Loss of Knowledge 

2. Skill Gaps  

3. Delayed Retirement Costs  

CHALLENGE ONE

Once "deep smarts" go out the door, companies that haven't previously extracted them are at a severe disadvantage. "The secret sauce of the company can be walking out of the door because of the know-how in key employees' heads” says expert and author Dorothy Leonard.  


LOSS OF KNOWLEDGE

CHALLENGE TWO

The skills gap in the manufacturing sector alone will cause 2 million jobs to go unfilled in the decade ending 2025  


SKILLS GAP

CHALLENGE THREE

Delayed retirement costs 1 – 1.5% of your entire workforce budget when people delay retirement by only 1 year.  

   


DELAYED RETIRMENT COSTS

THE REALITY...

  • About 80 % of survey respondents said their company has a significant number of employees approaching retirement age and acknowledged that managing the timing of their departures is an important business issue.  
  • Most employers don’t have a strategy to manage older works and the organizational knowledge gap ahead.
