We at Unfold consulting believe that retirement only means it is time for a new adventure.
Through our insights gathered from our retiree communitywe have identified that retirees don’t really feel that their work is done, but to want to explore their opportunities, try new ideas and walk paths they’ve always dreamt of.
Unfold Second Innings encourages retirees to pursue second careers by building diverse capabilities for exploring greater opportunities in interest areas. Unfold Second Innings promotes active ageing by offering career based solutions to seniors and retirees. The focus is on careers and capability building for retirees because Unfold believes that retirement is not the end but a start to another productive phase of life.
