DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Because of demographic challenges, recent EU pension reforms encourage later and more flexible retirement. Increasing the participation of 'older' workers is therefore crucial to implementing these reforms. While the question to why work beyond sixty has now become obvious, the how and for whom questions are the real topic of this new study by one of the best European specialists in the area.
This book provides an in-depth analysis of the growing importance of work beyond sixty and a comparative discussion of new policies in several EU Member States (Finland, Denmark, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland and others) as well as of company best practice.
