OECD Employment Policy Papers

The Employment Policy Papers broadly examine how public policies at national, regional and local levels can support job creation, including through entrepreneurship development in support of business start-ups and self-employment from disadvantaged or under-represented social groups. The first set of papers focus on inclusive entrepreneurship, by target group or policy instrument. The Policy Employment Papers are available in English and French.

Management practices for productivity gains of older workers

This paper analyses the efficacy of firm-level management practices in incorporating and retaining older workers. The paper notes that there are significant barriers to the integration of older workers into firms, and then outlines specific tools that could be used to enable older workers to contribute to enterprises. The OECD LEED Programme analysed age management practices in workplaces and found that a multi-faceted approach that targets multiple dimensions of the working experience of older workers should be pursued. Preserving flexibility, job training opportunities and mobility for older workers to a similar degree as the broader workforce is also encouraged.
