Abstract

The study was undertaken in order to prove that a flexible retirement policy rather than a fixed policy will benefit the organization. It was pointed out that although a flexible retirement policy does interfere with the order of the organization, the retention of retirement-aged individuals will contribute a great deal in terms of experience and competence. Furthermore, because flexible retirement policies are not popular with a majority of the businesses in the United States a cursory explanation of the aging process was presented. The aging individual was presented from a biological, sociological and psychological point of view. It was hoped that by examining information of several disciplines the manager would be better able to evaluate and implement the older employee into the organization. In addition, it was hoped that at the same time the many misunderstandings concerning the older employee would be brought to light and realistically evaluated. By so doing a better case for the adoption of flexible retirement policies by business was developed.
