Based on socio-economic and medical improvements as well as healthier lifestyles, a majority of baby boomer pensioners still feel fit and active and thus may struggle with transitioning into retirement. They could benefit from an ICT system to ease their transition into retirement and support general well- being.
The aim of this paper was to gain insights into the requirements for a digital coach to support their transition into retirement.
Two rounds of focus groups with older employees close to retirement, people just retired and relatives of retired were conducted. Outcomes were then identified through a framework analysis and integrated into the design of a digital coach.
Four functional groups (i) physical activity, (ii) cognitive support, (iii) emotional support and (iv) social support were identified.
