“Encore Fellowships are a smooth transitional pathway for our eligible pre-retirees wishing to contribute to the greater good after leaving Intel. It’s a new stage of work, with greater flexibility and connection with the local community.”
Richard Taylor, Intel Vice President of Human Resources
Intel’s Encore Career Fellowship program is aimed at active Intel U.S. employees who are retiring and wish to transition to a new stage of work with a local nonprofit organization where they help the organization build capacity, operate more efficiently, and ultimately, have a broader impact on their community.
Since the 2011 launch of this program, more than 240 retiring Intel employees have become Encore Fellows, demonstrating that the Encore Career Fellowships Program fits exceptionally well with Intel’s U.S. Retirement Services’ goal of making the important life transition beyond midlife work into a positive experience for its employees and the company.
The program offers eligible retirees:
- purposeful and flexible work beyond retirement;
- an alternative source of income following retirement from Intel;
- a positive connection between themselves, Intel and to their local community; and
- a structured introduction to a network of new relationships and new opportunities.
