Catherine Gordon, Human Resources Officer B.C. College of Teachers
Our employees clearly appreciatedIsabelle St-Jean’s thought-provoking and informative workshop on turning retirement into a re-engagement.  The focus included psychological aspects, clarification of our values, lifestyle issues and positive things we could do to enhance our sense of purpose in our daily lives now and through our transition ahead.  Isabelle also spoke about the importance of retiring without regrets and she helped us to identify what we could do now to improve our work satisfaction as we plan for continuing to contribute to society in the future.
