Exploring Retirement Options with New Horizons™

Retirement today doesn’t necessarily mean stopping work. For many it actually becomes a time of renewal – a time to purposefully refocus and rebalance one’s lifestyle. We do not assume any particular type of retirement lifestyle. Instead, our New Horizons program serves participants by helping them identify and plan for new ways of living that speak to individual passions and aspirations.

This program can be used in place of a traditional job-search focused outplacement program or as an internal options to supplement career development/succession management initiatives.

Retirement is not an end to productive work or personal contribution. Rather, it is a time to develop a new, personally healthy and constructive lifestyle that may not be available during one’s full-time career or occupation.

The New Horizons Pre-Retirement Planning program helps people at any point in their life path or contemplating a transition from their current position by helping them identify and plan for new and rewarding ways of living.

The New Horizons program has been defined around core materials developed by Richard P. Johnson, Ph.D, a nationally recognized expert in the field of retirement and adult development. Participants begin with a unique assessment that covers 20 separate lifestyle and attitudinal factors.
