We had a retirement lunch today for a colleague who’s retiring soon after 45 years of service. 45 years with one employer is just amazing. Something else amazing is that quite a few retirees came back for the luncheon. It was great to see them, and to have the chance to catch up a little bit. It has me thinking about how a workplace becomes a place where retirees enjoy coming back to visit.I don’t think every workplace is like that.
I think part if is the sense of community that has been created at work. Another factor is that a lot of our retirees stay local after retirement.
What do you think?
