Career and Retirement Transition Services

Career and Retirement Transition Services

Organizations that offer career transition services to existing employees help those employees quickly begin the chapter of their careers. By providing employees access to a one-on-one career or retirement coach, organizations can positively re-position the job search or retirement process making it a positive and rewarding one.

A Wealth of Resources

The number one objective for our service is to provide an affordable, high-quality, career or retirement transition service that helps people step into the future with confidence. In addition to counseling services, each participant will receive a comprehensive resource book that will guide them through the transition process.

An Affordable Investment

Employers Council’s most popular programs are priced under $1,000 per employee, and only charged for those employees who take advantage of it. We work with our members to choose the appropriate program length, keeping the individual and target financial investment in mind.

Reasons to Offer Career or Retirement Transition Services to Your Employees
Affect Your Organization’s Bottom Line

The more quickly employees have new opportunities, the less risk employers face of unemployment and other claims. The key is to provide the tools individuals will need to be successful in moving their career forward.

Maintain Your Organization’s Productivity

Employees who are not transitioned can be equally as affected as those who are. By providing services to employees leaving the company, you can maintain and even improve staff morale. Employees feel less guilty and less angry when co-workers are getting the services they need.

Quickly Transition to the New Normal for your Organization and the Retiree

As your company maintains an open culture of communication about retirement, you will reduce the number of abrupt retirements and departures. This promotes effective succession planning, including the proper exchange of intellectual property, institutional knowledge, and historical information. The more effectively retiring employees can let go of the job and help their replacement get up to speed, the less impact their departure will have on the team, the department, and the organization. Employers Council provides the tools future retirees need to be successful in moving to a new phase in life.

Establish a Positive Relationship with Retiring Employees for Future Needs

By providing this service, an employer signals that they wish to maintain a positive relationship with a departing employee. Not only does this create goodwill, but it also functions as a bridge, as your company might require a pool of experienced individuals to call on for a specific project or as consultants.

Protect Your Organization’s Reputation

By providing services to affected employees, your organization is viewed positively in the business community. Employers Council can help your organization continue to be viewed as an employer of choice, and your ability to attract and retain new talent will remain intact.

I attended the harassment prevention workshop put on by Employers Council, and I wanted to share my praise for the presenter. I was skeptical about whether I would learn anything I didn't already know, but she presented the information in thought-provoking and nuanced ways. She answered questions well and had us do an activity that enlivened the presentation. As an academic, I particularly appreciated the way that she was able to address the issues intellectually and not simply give us an "information dump." Anyway, I was impressed with what I expected to be a boring presentation. - Professor, Regis University

Our handbook needed to be updated. We had done minor revisions over the years, but more policies than we needed crept into the handbook over time. I wanted to keep what was important and get rid of the rest. I sent my handbook to Employers Council and staff went through all of the policies to first let me know what could be eliminated, and what needed to change in order to bring it up to date. The best thing was that this is part of my full membership dues, so there was no charge for this. I send in my handbook every one or two years for a tune up, so it reflects current laws and stays streamlined.

As I faced some difficult employee problems over the years, I knew that I could reach out to Employers Council and get some good solid advice in how to handle a situation. In the 20 years if have been working in HR I don’t believe I was ever given bad advice. I may not have always agreed with what the counsel was, but I never put myself or the company in a compromising position by following your advice and recommendations.

Joe Maylin, Human Resources Manager - Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co.

Being able to reach out to someone on the Member Experience Team when something comes up and we're just not sure how to handle it is amazing. We have help just a phone call or an email away, and everyone that we have worked with has been so responsive, understanding, and helpful.
