Prior to forming Gentry Professional Services, a group of engineers and project managers struggled with a frequently recurring problem. The most experienced industry professionals were retiring at a rapid pace, resulting in a Silver Tsunami of lost institutional knowledge. Companies struggled to compensate for the sudden absence of key employees.
After a short time, many retirees found they missed the work and the people that had been a part of their lives for decades and often wanted to return to a part-time consulting role. Although possible, the inconsistent, and overly complex HR and Procurement policies made returning a difficult and complicated process for everyone involved.
