Outplacement / Career Transition

In today’s economy, layoffs are a complicated yet frequent occurrence. For the employer, careful planning and flawless implementation are required to prevent erosion of the business, as well as the organization’s standing in the community. For displaced employees, high levels of unemployment leave many feeling that they have few options for alternative employment or that their careers have been derailed. For remaining employees, uncertainty levels can rise significantly and productivity levels may decline considerably. The bottom line: these situations can leave many individuals, whether leaving or staying, with a sense of frustration, fear and anxiety.

Retirement Planning – New Horizons – Mapping your Life Options

“Retirement” no longer means that a person stops working; rather, it is considered a period of transition where an individual re-focuses and re-balances his or her lifestyle to align with personal circumstances. New Horizons – Mapping your Life Options®, a special program for the mature workforce, helps employees prepare for this transition by assessing their retirement readiness and then strategically planning for a future aligned with their changing lifestyle to bring renewed fulfillment. In working with coaches certified in New Horizons – Mapping your Life Options®, participants create a self-portrait of personal needs that guides them toward becoming fully invested in a new and rewarding lifestyle of their own design.

When the subject of “retirement” comes up, many people take a view that is narrow and short-sighted when compared to the options available. Only by exploring all these options — in the context of personal circumstances, dreams, and needs — can one begin to develop a retirement plan that brings the fulfillment we aspire to achieve.

About Retirement Options

Founded in 1989 to help individuals focus on the critical non-financial facets of retirement planning, Retirement Options is the leading global provider of retirement coach certifications and its two retirement readiness assessments, the Retirement Success™ Profile and the Life Options™ Profile. By exploring various aspects of life impacted by retirement such as work, family, leisure, wellness, and personal development, these pre-retirement assessments enable individuals to plan for and enjoy a more fulfilling retirement.  Retirement Options is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Career Partners International.  Additional information can be found by visiting http://www.retirementoptions.com/.
