📣 Why Sustainable Livelihoods Must Be at the Heart of Modern Retirement Planning
📈 Recent data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) reveals a paradigm shift in the UK's approach to work and retirement. A record 3.6 million people over 50 are now working part-time, a 12% increase since just last year.
🔄 The traditional linear career path is evolving. More people are choosing a phased approach to retirement, benefiting not just their financial health but also their overall well-being.
👉 However, this shift also raises concerns:
1️⃣ Part-time work often equates to lower-quality roles.
2️⃣ Institutional ageism limits full-time opportunities for older workers.
3️⃣ A significant number of people are still outside the system, actively seeking work but unable to find it.
🌱 Sustainability in Livelihoods
Retirement planning can no longer be just about accumulating enough for a 'comfortable' retirement. It must also factor in the sustainability of part-time roles, the quality of work, and the broader socio-economic impacts.
