Employee Benefit Program
The Full Story
These days, it can be hard to attract new employees, and keep old ones. Employers are increasing wages and adding benefits they hope will help retain employees. Among the most popular benefits are retirement savings plans. If that’s where helping employees plan for retirement stops, you’re missing a couple of big opportunities to keep experienced, quality employees on board, engaged, and happy to help attract new employees with the experience you need.
Too often, when employees reach their goal in retirement investments and savings, they hit the retirement button, and are out the door. They figure if they’ve got the money, everything else will take care of itself. That’s bad for them, and for their employers. A meaningful and joyous retirement takes more than money, it takes a plan.
As an employer, you can offer employees who are nearing the age when they start considering retirement, the opportunity to look beyond how much money and get help creating a powerful plan for their retirement. Maybe they want to become a consultant, launch a nonprofit, travel the world, build better relationships, or stay home and build strong connections with family, friends, and the community. By giving them to tools to plan their retirement, you’re also giving them reasons to continue as an employee, find new ways to serve the company, or become fresh and engaged faces of the company in the community.
Retirement can be stressful, and disappointing. By offering non-financial retirement coaching, you’re giving your employers a way to reduce the stress, and stay connected to the company longer during some of their most productive years. If they know that a well-planned retirement takes time, and offers huge rewards, they’re more likely to hang around until they’ve put in the work to build their plan. Non-financial retirement coaching also opens them to new ways of envisioning how to stay connected to your company, the network of friends they’ve built there, and the feelings of accomplishment they’ll miss if they leave. It also is an attractive benefit to perspective employees – one they will seldom see elsewhere. It’s a win-win-win for everyone.
