We need this talent, and must adopt a more flexible view of work to coax more to stay. Create bell-shaped career paths – Individuals must be able to continue to contribute to businesses in respected, although less intense ways, into their 70s, 80s and beyond. Encourage counterintuitive entry points – Allow individuals to begin “entry” level jobs at multiple points throughout their lives, either as a way into new careers or to gain flexible options better suited to a preferred lifestyle. Many individuals will have two and even three distinct careers throughout their lifetime. Design project-based, cyclical work – Already, 49% of U.S. workers who plan to work during traditional retirement years say they prefer periods of full-time work interspersed with periods of no work. Job sharing is key. Accommodate blended lives – Make job sharing and other part-time options widely available Customize work arrangements – Allow flexibility based on individual needs and preferences Source: Testimony by Tamara J.
