Live Longer, Work Longer

This report helps establish a new agenda for age-friendly employment policies and practices. It sets out the policy challenges presented by rapidly ageing labour forces in OECD countries and draws out the main lessons learned from OECD's series of country reviews on Ageing and Employment policies.  Among other issues, it discusses how to remove work disincentives and increase choice in the work-retirement decision, improve employability of older workers, and change employer attitudes and employment practices.

Improving Employability

Key messages: Up-to-date skills, good access to employment services and better working conditions are three key aspects of employability that will affect the ability of older workers to find and keep a job and that will influence their retirement decisions. These three aspects will become increasingly important as larger cohorts of workers move into the older age groups and more of them stay on longer at work. Again, the responsibility for change needs to be shared between governments, employers, trade unions and older workers themselves.
