Retirement Transition Planning

Helping employees retire successfully

Demographics in the U.S. and other developed nations point to an aging population as varied as the general workforce.

Some choose traditional retirement paths while others seek options allowing them to remain engaged and involved with their careers. Employees are remaining with their organizations longer and rarely plan for disengagement and how to transition to retirement. This lack in retirement transition planning is leaving a void in workforce planning, impacting succession and critical knowledge transfer, not to mention employee engagement and organizational performance.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics:

  • The labor force is expected to increase by 8.9 million, or 5.5%, from 2020 to 2030.
  • The workforce aged 16 to 24 is projected to shrink by 7.5% from 2020 to 2030.
  • Among people aged 75 years and older, the labor force is expected to grow by 96.5%.


These numbers are unexpected and imply that over 80% of companies will report having a significant number of employees at or approaching retirement age. This demographic tsunami creates succession planning challenges for current and future staff that can’t be ignored without severe consequences to an organization.
