2014 IRO Accomplishments and 2015 Priorities

Making it easier to be an Intel retiree
–Improved on our closed loop process where incoming issues drive content and communication updates resulting in a decrease in questions/issues into the mailbox since 2012 – remaining flat with 2013.  examples:

  • Creating Cobra information for new retirees;
  • Identifying an issue with the Intel Involved website and working with Intel to get it fixed in one week over the holidays.

–Retiree ‘self help’ via website also continued a downward trend of mailbox inquiries.
–New intelretiree.com website coordination completed so that we will not have redundant or conflicting content, as well as ensuring we have the most up-to-date and accurate content.
–Revamped our Home Page and About Us to make it easier to join the organization and to make our excellent working relationship with Intel clearer.
-Added a welcome/orientation guide for new retirees to our website and news Flash.

Building an Intel retiree community that is an asset to Intel and the communities in which we reside

–Membership grew 21% from 2013, is currently over 3200 and growing faster than the total number of retirees!
–Funded an Intel Involved postcard which increased membership opt-in as well as Intel Involved participation

Retirees’ feel part of the Intel family
–Devised and implemented a strategy that successfully increased 2014 event participation by 30%. (both dinners & lunches)
–Folsom retirees included in Folsom’s 30th Anniversary event. Pilot in progress with Folsom Site Committee to see how our Site Coordinators and Site Committees can add value together.
–Completed the work to create IRO business cards for retirees who need them as they volunteer in our local communities.
–Implementation of the Retiree Circuit Portal along with retiree access to the Employee Purchase Plan (EPP).  Work done during 2014, launched January 2015.
–Implementation of the new Advantage discount program, as well as retiring the former Passport program.
–Made the McAfee discount available to retirees, including implementing a ‘temporary’ authorization procedure via the IRO Mailbox.

Improving IRO’s capability, recognizing our success
–Increased retiree participation on our IRO board and committees, as well as for event planning.

2015 Priorities

Making it easier to be an Intel retiree
–Continue providing retirees with a single venue for fast, efficient and accurate answers from Intel via the Intel Retiree Organization mailbox, intelretiree@gmail.com.
–Continue to maintain relevant, timely and up-to-date communications via our website, News Flash, email, postcards and by leveraging Intel communications and the IRO mailbox where appropriate. (ex: Add information for spouses of deceased retirees.)
–Continue to monitor Intel’s new retiree website to ensure accurate and up-to-date information is maintained.
–Survey our News Flash readership on article interest, frequency of News Flash, format of News Flash, and social media opportunities. Reevaluate our communication strategies based on that feedback.

Building an Intel retiree community that is an asset to Intel and the communities in which we reside
–Continue to work with Intel on using retirees as assets

  • Publish process for retirees applying for Intel retiree SA CW positions with Kelly OCG.

Retiree’s feel part of the Intel family
–Continue to work with Intel on expanding discounts and Great Place to Work benefits for retirees.

–Implement and launch our IRO business cards (launched in April).
–Work with site committees to define site level activities that will involve retirees and facilitate necessary processes.
–Continue to have retirees participate in Intel events and network with senior Intel Managers on increasing opportunities for retirees (ex: the Gordon Moore Event & Folsom 30th)

–Continue to increase annual dinner attendance.

Improving IRO’s capability, recognizing our success
