Retirement is the stage in an employee’s life when they voluntarily exit the workforce and cease regular employment, often marked by receiving pension benefits or retirement savings.

The demographic shift towards an aging workforce requires HR to address issues related to knowledge transfer and accommodating the varying needs and preferences of different generations, which is vital for an inclusive and engaged workplace. In summary, HR’s concern for retirement encompasses aspects of financial well-being, talent management, and workforce planning, all of which are critical for organizational success and employee satisfaction.
