Planning for retirement online

I’m pleased to see this use of an online resource by Human Resources to support retirement planning. We are looking at online resources to supplement other HR staff development for Brookes and welcome your feedback.


As part of Human Resources’ Equality and Diversity programme we have increased our range of benefits for colleagues by purchasing a licence for an e-learning programme which encompasses life planning elements, with particular focus on planning for retirement. It is called ‘Talking Retirement Online’ and is produced by Retirement Education Services, who have over 20 years experience in helping people with life planning issues or to prepare for their retirement.

This programme is freely available to Brookes staff, so please do take advantage of it as much as possible. Many retirement planning issues benefit from being considered decades prior to retirement itself you are encouraged, regardless of your age, to scan the content to see the benefits offered to you.

Login details available from your HR team

The programme covers all aspects of retirement, and has been designed so that you can choose to view the whole package in one go, or dip in and cherry-pick the information you need when you need it.

Please do let us have your feedback and contact us if you have any queries do please get in touch.
