Partial retirement?

Her employer is YourEncore, a company that contracts with major corporations nationwide to provide retired scientists, product developers, and engineers with full- or part-time work. "Demand is strong for these professionals who have well-honed skills," says Brad Lawson, CEO of YourEncore.

Lawson is taking advantage of what experts predict will be a shortage of workers with specific skills and talent as 77 million baby boomers reach retirement age and the number of seasoned professionals to replace them falls short. With an estimated 20% of the U.S. workforce age 55 or older by 2012, up from 14% in 2002, "employers are going to need to hire people of any age as long as they have the experience the company needs," says Mary Young, a senior researcher for strategic workforce planning at the Conference Board.
