Retired senior citizens possess a lifetime of experience working in diverse roles with varied responsibilities. They have the knowledge and expertise to handle business matters and the experience to deal with problems that may arise. So, companies can benefit from the vast experience, expertise and ability to work with a wide range of customers and personalities.
In my case, as a retiree with decades of experience and having held a senior-level role in an MNC, I bring to the table practical experience, customer relationship, and problem analysing skills.
The first quality retirees bring into an organisation is the wealth of their experience. Having weathered many storms, they are resilient and will definitely keep themselves updated on the latest technologies. Another important quality of retirees is their maturity in handling people and all stakeholders of the organisation.

Retirees bring with them the experience of how Industries operated in the pre- liberalisation & post-liberalisation eras. They are also witness to & have participated in the massive changes that took place in the last decade or so. Strong work ethics, patience, and a balanced approach are some of the qualities retirees bring to the table. Being in a profession for a long period of time helps develop skills in the chosen domain.
We bring experience and wisdom to the organisation with our deep expertise, especially where we have deep specialisation. We also fit, in interim, critical senior positions as a bridge to managing the talent gap in any organisation for the short to medium term. We can also be great mentors, coaches and advisors when needed.

Leadership, loyalty & honesty are the pillars of an organisation. Defence retirees can inculcate these skills by giving personal examples. These days we need to motivate the workforce to give their best. In addition to compensation, employees are looking for leaders who can lead and guide them. Targets can be met if realistic goals are set keeping in view the resources available at your disposal.
