LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tengia, creator of the industry’s first platform designed to connect Americans 65 plus with individuals and small businesses in need of skill-based services, today announced that registration is open for early access to its platform.
“In many cases, people approaching the traditional retirement age are at the peak of their professional career, not on their way out,” says Deoné Sulgatti, founder and CEO of Tengia. “Tengia acknowledges and celebrates the experience one amasses over a lengthy career by providing an outlet that empowers professionals to share their knowledge with society while also earning supplemental income.”
This announcement comes at a time when retirement is being redefined with three-quarters of employees saying they plan to continue working, according to the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies. Whether working towards a more comfortable lifestyle, recovering from the recession or possessing a desire to contribute to society, many are delaying retirement to pursue encore careers, continue work in the same fields but with added flexibility or start a new business venture.
By facilitating an opportunity for the 65-plus population to continue working in the industries they know and love, Tengia seeks to add value back into the lives of older generations. Tengia’s online platform offers flexible employment, where Tengia seekers can post jobs and hire experienced professionals across more than 50 skill-based industries including legal, tech and business. The platform aims to facilitate connections between seekers and professionals who are looking to provide on-demand service at competitive rates. Upon registration, professionals select their areas of expertise, availability and set the fees for their time.
