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.

The Challenge Ahead

Key messages: Population ageing is both a challenge and an opportunity for all OECD countries. There are significant cross-country differences in the rate of population ageing and some countries face much bigger challenges than others. Therefore, the scale of the measures required is not the same across countries nor is the urgency with which reforms need to be put in place. Nevertheless, all countries will need to mobilise more fully the potential labour resources of older people as the key policy response to population ageing.
