See on Scoop.itShare Some Love Today

There are 80 million baby-boomers in the U.S., most of whom were supposed to be retiring in the next five to ten years. But the instability of the financial system in the last decade (and its effects on personal savings and retirement accounts), along with a growing interest in doing meaningful work that has a positive impact in the world, is leading to a budding new trend for Boomers: encore careers.

 

Championed by enterprising organizations such as Encore.org, encore careers are follow-on careers where Boomers take the skills, knowledge, and wisdom they’ve gained from decades of work and put them to use on projects that they find personally meaningful. This means more Boomers will be sticking around in the office for years and years to come.
