ABOUT US

Our Mission and Team

OUR PURPOSE

The old workplace model of “work till 65 and retire for a decade of leisure” is outdated and broken. In the last few decades we have added 20 years to lifespans, yet vibrant contributors are being discarded daily, pensions have been cut, and the social safety net is being shredded. It is time for employer practices to catch up with the new longevity.

Respectful Exits is the organized voice of aging workers, insisting that employers implement a Longevity Agenda:

  • End the 65 “sell-by” date as a mandatory or informal “retirement age”

  • Practice career-long development and training of all staff

  • Encourage robust flexible scheduling for employees of all ages

  • Provide ongoing, on-demand financial wellness counseling

  • Implement and promote flexible and phased retirement options

Through a dynamic national campaign with local affiliates, we are making the case, mobilizing employees, and engaging employers to make these practices the new normal for aging workers.

Students fear going to school. Aging workers fear retiring. It wasn’t supposed to be this way—and doesn’t have to be.
We can be the change that’s needed.
