Employers today have a problem – there aren’t enough young people entering the workforce to take the place of retiring baby boomers! For Boomers, this is good news. The recession is masking the problem somewhat for the short term, but employers are braced for the talent gap. Tammy Erickson explains the options for boomer who want to work and need to work. Retire Retirement helps boomers:
•Consider your options
•Renegotiate your deal and get what you want
•Reinvent your career and your life
Erickson shared, “The power is shifting in the favor of the boomers who can renegotiate their relationship with work.”
“Tammy Erickson is an expert in workforce trends and talent management solutions,” Sheryl Dawson, co-host shared. “Retire Retirement helps you decide what you want and shows you how to go about getting it.”
Ken Dawson, Total Career Success show host added, “If you want to stay in the field you’re in, unconventional work arrangements are becoming more commonplace. Tammy shows you what’s reasonable and how to negotiate to achieve your goals. Or, you may decide to launch a new career, start a business, become a consultant, or turn to volunteer work.”
“Indeed, boomers can experiment, network, and build on their success as they launch their mature life career. Few want to sit on a rocker, pier or golf cart in retirement – nor can many afford to! Tammy encourages, challenges, and motivates boomers to reach for their dream job or career.”
