Employment Exchange for Senior Citizens

0 364

Dear Editor,
Through the medium of your esteemed paper I would like to highlight the vision of the government to create a facilitator portal as an employment exchange for senior citizens. The employment exchange, tentatively named SACRED, acronym for Senior Able Citizens for Re-Employment in Dignity, should start off as a facilitator web portal. It is a welcome step on the part of the government to re-engage the senior citizens especially retired persons from the armed forces, RBI, Nationalized banks, and public sector undertaking besides state and central Government employees could be among the first set of senior citizens to be re-engaged given the special set of skills and experience they bring. Retirement is not a stage when a person loses all his abilities but at this age, he becomes much more useful for re-employment. Retiring from a job, does not mean retiring from mind. Short term employment, teaching, and counseling jobs be identified among ways to productively engage senior citizens to mutual benefits. Retirement is not the end of the road. It is the beginning of the open highway.
