n pursuing work after retirement, managers are more likely than clerical or blue-collar workers to start their own business and find another job, according to a new study out of the University of Toronto.

About 40 per cent of people found some form of employment, either full-time or part-time, after retiring from Bell Canada. Of this group, the return-to-work rate was highest among managers (56 per cent) followed by blue-collar and clerical staff at slightly more than 20 per cent each.
