Ageing and Employment Policies: Norway 2013

Working Better with Age

image of Ageing and Employment Policies: Norway 2013

This report provides an overview of the substantial ageing and employment policy initiatives already implemented in Norway over the past decade and identifies areas where more should be done, covering both supply-side and demand-side aspects.

To give better incentives to carry on working, the report recommends further reforms in the second-pillar pension schemes, particularly for public sector employees. On the side of employers, it is important to progress towards more age-neutral hiring decisions and to review of age limits for mandatory retirement.

To improve the employability of older workers, the focus should be to promote job-related training with a particular focus on mid-career workers and to encourage initiatives based on a full-time culture and good working conditions for all.

Foreword

In the context of rapid population ageing, giving older people better work incentives and choices is crucial to promote economic growth and improve the sustainability of public social expenditures. Therefore, the OECD Employment, Labour and Social Affairs Committee decided in 2011 to carry out a new review of policies to encourage greater labour market participation at an older age by fostering employability, job mobility and labour demand. It builds upon previous work that the OECD has conducted in this area in the Ageing and Employment Politics series and summarised in its major multi-country report, Live Longer, Work Longer, published in 2006.
