Purpose and a Paycheck with Chris Farrell

Purpose and a Paycheck is the title of Chris Farrell's latest book (published earlier this year by HarperCollins Leadership).

An impressive body of scholarly research strongly suggests that given the opportunity, people in the second half of life can be as creative, innovative, and entrepreneurial as their younger peers, if not more so.

Tapping into the talents of experienced workers and breaking down the barriers of age discrimination holds the promise of boosting the economy’s dynamism and household incomes.

In this program, you'll discover:

  • The impact on the economy if more people continue working rather than retire
  • Why more people are working well into the traditional retirement years
