Retirees' Employment Service

The Retirees' Employment Service program, or R.E.S, places retired Clemson employees into positions that need experienced labor quickly. This service is designed to help Clemson University reach its 10-year goals approved by the Board of Trustees on January 26, 2001.

R.E.S. helps the hiring department and the employee equally. A hiring department benefits with people who are already familiar with Clemson University. The department also receives the highest quality labor available for such positions. Associates in both programs find the opportunities in different departments to be refreshing and interesting. Associates also enjoy the ability to go back to their normal routine after the assignment has been completed.

Two of Clemson University's goals are:

  1. Clemson's national reputation - Promote high integrity and professional demeanor among all members of the University community.
  2. Campus life - Strengthen our sense of community and increase our diversity.

Retirees are and always will be an active ingredient in the making of the university. In an effort to promote the “ONE Clemson” concept, Clemson University Office of Human Resources is placing more emphasis on our retirees and their contributions and worth to Clemson beyond retirement through the revitalization of the Retirees’ Employment Service (RES).

An updated database of retirees desiring to work temporarily or on an as needed basis is available. The retirees’ labor pool is to benefit both retirees and University departments.

What is RES? How does it work?
RES is our on-campus Retirees’ Employment Service. RES functions as a temporary agency to supply the campus with workers on an as-needed basis. The service consists of a pool of Clemson University retirees seeking to stay affiliated with Clemson through temporary or sporadic employment.
