The joys of retirement?
Monday, January 16, 2017
The joys of retirement are widely touted, especially by people getting close to that magic age. But according to recent studies, more than 3/4 of U.S. workers are taking on some type of job after leaving their full-time career.
It’s a boon to companies in search of skilled, experienced workers. Good news for employers in the Iowa Lakes Corridor region: more than 1/4 of all the area’s retired workers surveyed said they were willing to re-enter the job market.
In addition to these retirees, the Iowa Lakes Corridor Development Corporation reports a particularly diverse and experienced workforce in the area. More than 80 percent of those employed are willing to change employers if the right job comes along. Over 1/3 of homemakers are interested in getting back into the job market.
