Recommendation 35: Improving long-term planning for transition to retirement

The recommendation

Ambulance Victoria should:

  1. factor transition to retirement for its existing and future employees into long-term workforce planning via a transition to retirement strategy, informed by sector peers, staff and unions and professional associations, so that systems and options are in place to maximise the contribution of workers as they near retirement, while supporting their health and wellbeing
  2. review and update its arrangements relating to transition to retirement, so that:
    1. regular mechanisms are in place to seek staff and union input into improvements to transition to retirement options and support
    2. employees who are considering retirement have access to dedicated and specialist counsellors who can assist them and their manager prepare a long-term plan.

What we are doing

  • Develop a transition to retirement strategy
  • Regularly seek feedback to ensure continual improvement of transition to retirement strategy
  • Provide support to enable employees and their managers to prepare a long-term transition to retirement plan
