Work and well-being for senior workforce

The ongoing demographic changes in the Western societies rooted in the post-war baby boom have led to an increasing proportion of senior individuals in the potential workforce, while the availability of younger workforce has decreased due to reduced fertility rates by the same postwar generations. No clear age limits can be said to define seniority from the vantage point of work life. An age limit in the range of 45+ was initially proposed for the Nordic contexts by Ilmarinen (2001), Kilbom, Westerholm, Hallsten and Furåker (1997) and Tikkanen (1999). Sterns and Miklos (1995) proposed an age limit of 55+, which is more in line with a recent national survey in Norway indicating the age of 56 years as the time when workers begin to be perceived as senior (Dalen, 2005).
