A loved one had an RFP for a high profile deal.
His current staff couldn’t handle the additional workload.
He didn’t have time to train a temp,
Instead, he offered a contract assignment
to
a newly retired employee.

She knew the systems.
She had the skills.
She even had contacts at the company
they were pitching to.
It was the perfect solution.

It is called double dipping,
an employee receiving
both retirement income
and employment income
from the same company.

It works out well for everyone.
The company gets a well trained temp
and the retiree gets a boost to her bank account.

Unfortunately,
45 percent of companies place restrictions
on rehiring retirees.

If your company doesn’t,
stay in touch with your retiring employees
(the ones you wouldn’t mind rehiring).
Keep them in mind for special projects.
