What employers and seniors are saying
I found working after retirement not as stressful as compared to before retirement. I could be selective in the role and decide whether to take up the job or not. There is no need to compete with the younger generation for promotion or increment. In the organization that I was hired into, the working environment is very cohesive. The person teaching me was very helpful. Picking up skills and knowledge is pretty fast due to the many years of experience working.
Hiring a retiree as our family driver has been a wonderful experience for us. We found her to be highly reliable, trustworthy, professional, patient and kind. She is like part of our family now!
My advise to senior citizens – Don’t sit and watch TV serials or look after your grandchildren all day long. As long as you are capable to work, go out there and be independent by working. You can go on holidays without depending on others to fork out the expenses. Life is short enjoy it while you can.
A laid back life is fun but after a while it got rather boring hence l chose to go back to work, to keep my
mind sharp and active. There is always something new to learn everyday.
We hired a retiree to help with administration and coordination work. We found that seniors have confidence and experience in managing people at all levels and background. They are typically not shy and timid. Their communication skills and stakeholder management skills are highly effective.

Retirement is changing today
Today’s seniors are healthier, more active and have a longer life expectancy than before thanks to advancements in medical sciences. Where in the past, retirement used to mean the end of work, studies now show that a majority of people plan to continue working after they retire – often in new and different ways.
We are seeing retirees use the opportunity to pursue areas of passion that they were not able to do so before, with reduced financial or family responsibilities.
For employers, this presents a wonderful opportunity to tap on previously unexplored resources among retirees. Retirees bring with them years of experience and institutional knowledge, greater dependability, a stronger work ethic, and flexibility over work schedule and remuneration.
Hire.Seniors was founded by a team of professionals with senior executive backgrounds in human capital management, recruiting, performance management and business consulting. We are a social enterprise focused on helping senior citizens / retirees find suitable employment post-retirement. We reach out directly to seniors with jobs that have been specially curated for them, engaging with employers who are open to employing retirees.
In view of Malaysia becoming an aged nation, we believe in the importance of working beyond retirement and the symbiotic relationship that employers can have with retirees for mutual benefit. Our pool of retirees ranges from C-level executives with over 30 years’ experience, to mid-level managers and supervisors; accountants; administrators and secretaries; to general workers. We also provide companies the flexibility of hiring temporary resources that are skilled and experienced to fill in for staff that are on maternity breaks, long illness absences or to undertake any ad-hoc or temporary assignments
