using retirees as an organisational resourse



We are currently researching the role of people who have retired as a resource for organisations. Our focus is the apparent under usage of the expertise that resides with people who have finished work, but still have something to offer. We all know the B&Q approach but we have noticed that many skilled people don't want to or need to take up formal work, but they are keen to share their knowledge and expertise on an ad-hoc basis. Working for consultancy organisations can be seen as to akin to work! 

Do you know of any organisation that has a policy / approach to use this untapped group?

Do you know any retirees that have used their skills to support organisations?

Do you have any thoughts on the subject?

Many Thanks,

Maxine Clark & Ian Hall

  1. I’ve done this previously

    Hi Maxine / Ian


    I used a retiree recently and would be happy to share what I did, why and how.  Contact me on; if you think I can help.



  2. alumni

    one of my clients have an "alumni group"…..this is made up of former employees who can offer mentoring, coaching, advice and support to the organisation/individuals on an ad hoc basis.

    I think they have an overall arrangement for fee paying/expenses and then work on a call as needed basis co-ordinated by an alumni office.

    I hope that helps
