Older Workers in a Sustainable Society


Edited By Richard Ennals and Robert H. Salomon

The challenges of an ageing population and workforce are increasingly recognised by policy makers, managers and workers in many countries. In this book, prominent researchers address these challenges. It deals with health and workability, and gives data and viewpoints on competitive advantages and disadvantages of older workers. The study includes data on attitudes, specific measures and policies from many parts of the world: Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil and Singapore. The authors present a variety of interesting examples of measures used in workplaces, to motivate and enable workers to stay longer in working life. This book is an encounter between research and policy: it contributes to the discussion of policies related to older workers.
