Problem

In year 2018, 100,000 workers will leave the workforce at 60 years old as the mandatory retirement is at 60 years old. With good health and a lot of enthusiasm for work, retirees often miss the work environment and the chance to continue doing what they do best. Many industries face a loss of expertise and knowledge when their more experienced employees retire. Retirees can still continue to make a strong contribution to the organization but there is a lack of platform for retirees to search for part-time opportunity to contribute their skills back to the workplace.

Solution

1. Assess retirees technical skills and post retirement work preference.
2. Identify organisation skill gap and project needs.
3. Match retiree skills and preference to organisation needs so retirees can take up active role in organisation temporary projects that can be done on a consulting basis.

Target Beneficiary

This project is targeted to impact retirees who face challenges in returning to work post retirement. Active60 believes that every person have their own potential to be fulfilled. At the age post 60, opportunities often favor the young and the tech-savvy ones. Hence, Active60 aims to create a inclusive workforce through connecting retirees skills to the workplace post retirement.
