Many boomers may be headed to semi-retirement rather than retirement with employers looking to hold onto older employees in the face of the shortage of workers. Consider that two-thirds of boomers say their employers are well prepared to handle when they retire, but also less than half of these people say their company has a successor in place for when they do retire.
