Course Description


Planning to retire from full time work? Are you ready? This GLOMACS Retirement Planning (RP) training course guides employees through 5 days of interactive and activity-laden session that cover everything from retirement benefits to work-life. 

Traditionally, retirement planning training courses emphasized the employee benefits and financial factors related to retirement planning. Personal planning is important because it is the determining factor of your satisfaction with your retirement lifestyle. Financial planning is crucial because it identifies your sources of income and expenses and establishes your retirement budget, based on your personal plan.

Our dynamic and collaborative Retirement Planning focuses not only on these important issues, but also more personal issues such as work-life transitions, emotional preparedness and new or part-time employment.

This GLOMACS training course will highlight:

  • Retirement (voluntary or mandatory) is the next phase of career which should be planned ahead just like it was with the preceding phase of productive employment
  • This continuous journey needs to be taken holistically, enabling one to psychologically and mentally prepare for a successful, productive and optimal life in retirement
  • Retirement paradigm shift – “We retire to something, rather than from something”  
  • Retirement is the “3rd Box” of life consisting not only of leisure but also contents of all the previous two “Boxes”, i.e. learning & self-development and productive life
  • The retirement journey must be navigated with appropriate knowledge, skills, and abilities for optimal fulfillment and satisfaction


At the end of this GLOMACS training course on Retirement Planning (RP), you will learn to:

  • Assume accountability and responsibility for your retirement plan
  • Profile your next theme of life that suits your character, interests, needs and current circumstances
  • Develop your holistic retirement plans encompassing Spiritual-Physical-Intellectual-Career-Emotional-Social & Financial (SPICES/F) of life
  • Make sound decisions to create (invest), protect (insure, etc.)  and distribute (wills, etc.) your wealth to achieve your financial well-being targets 
  • Live a renewed life and create fulfilling retirement lifestyles
  • Optimize your senior years in terms of personal freedom and self-realization
