Preparing for retirement - new seminars

We would like to take the opportunity to inform you about a new programme related to retirement, organised by the Human Resources Department. Retirement marks the end of a career and the start of a new chapter in life.  In all cases, being well-informed and prepared is necessary to cope successfully with this transition.

The programme has been developed for staff members and consists of two seminars:

  1. Leaving CERN (half day seminar): short presentations by internal speakers, focusing on what options CERN offers at the end of your career:
    • organised once per year,
    • next session scheduled on 24 November 2015, in the afternoon,
    • enrolment and more information on Indico.
  2. Preparation for retirement (2-day seminar): interactive workshop (in small groups) delivered by external experts, focusing on how to prepare psychologically as well as practically to cope with all the changes retirement brings:
    • organised regularly in 2016, in English or French,
    • enrolment via the CERN training catalogue. (Please note that the “Sign-Up” button will only be activated as of Monday, 9 November – apologies for this technical inconvenience).

If you are a staff member and considering retirement in the next one or two years, then these seminars are ideally suited for you, and we encourage you to join. Spouses/partners are also welcome – please indicate their participation when you enrol.

For more information, you can contact Erwin Mosselmans, HR-LD, tel. 74125.
