Letter from Paul Rupert,
Respectful Exits CEO
The guidance in ThePhazer™ is based on tools and processes we developed in the phased retirement programs of major companies. Hundreds have used them successfully. While no one can guarantee the success of a given proposal – and there are risks in stepping forward – two truisms apply here: “If you don’t ask, you won’t get” and “You don’t get what you deserve…you get what you negotiate.”
Think of this site as a GPS to the destination of your choice. You can modify the route as you go, but there is value in starting with a clear guide in hand. The tool is free for individual use. We also encourage you to share it with colleagues and sign up for the free monthly update which will include new and modified content, success stories and troubleshooting lessons.
We wish you the best on your unique and creative journey. The growing Respectful Exits community will provide ongoing support and work with employers to change their attitudes and practices toward the aging workforce. Working together we can reduce the risk to individuals, families and the larger society.
