The article discusses the directions of future retirement and the responsibilities of employers, employees and the government. The author presents eight different economic trends that are helping to change the retirement of employees. Some of the trends include moving more towards diversity in the workforce, less people taking early retirement, business objectives and organizational goals changing towards a blend of financial security with performance incentives, and still offering both defined-benefit and defined-contribution plans. Some other trends mentioned are the globalization and increased portability of plans, increased decision making by employees themselves, companies seeing employees as customers, and a decrease in government intervention.
