For many seniors, retirement does not necessarily mean an end to working. In Singapore, the employment rate for older workers has steadily increased, from 57% in 2009 to 65% in 2013.

Last year, 99% of private sector local employees who turned 62 were offered re-employment.

With more and more employees over the age of 60 choosing to continue working, AAG pulled out six tips for helping mature workers maintain a work-life balance.

These tips include:

  1. Get the right job – Are you more career-oriented or family-oriented? Do you want to work throughout the week or just afternoons?
  2. Look for flexibility – Do you prefer to work from home or an office branch closer to your home? Do you require flexible start and stop hours?
  3. Discuss family needs – Do your children rely on you for childcare – and if so, how often? Do you require an assistance programme for your older relatives?

Check out the full infographic below for tips on how mature employees find the right job for their needs, and how you as employers can help them answer these key questions.
