The Future for Older Workers: New Perspectives 



workers are increasingly needed in working life, and it is necessary to reinforce a

reversal of the tradition of early retirement and to extend working life. This

collection of scholarly articles is an important contribution to the discussion of

future policy on work and retirement, offering new perspectives and critical

discussions of the topic." Per Erik Solem, Norwegian Social Research (NOVA)

Product Description
Across the world, Governments in mature industrial and

post-industrial economies are concerned about the ageing population. Dealing directly

and exclusively with the issue of older workers, this book brings together up-to-the

minute research findings by many of the leading researchers and writers in the field.

The authors address key issues that will influence public policy in the UK and

beyond, including: What do workers over 50 want: the opportunity to retire early, to

retire gradually or to carry on working past state pension ages? What impact will an

ageing workforce have on employer policies towards recruitment, training, career

management and retirement? How will the government promote the benefits of extending

working lives, and what supports will older workers and their employers need from the

government's pension, taxation and benefits regimes? The duration and quality of

working lives, and the timing and circumstances of retirement is of growing concern,

especially in those cases where employers' demands and imperatives clash with

employees' wishes. The contributions in this volume focus upon various measures

taken by the state and employers to foster the employment of older workers in

Britain, mainland Europe, the USA and Japan. The book is aimed at academics,

students, policy-makers and other professionals (e.g. training managers, HR

professionals and trade unionists) interested in contemporary issues within social

policy, sociology of ageing, human resource and diversity management. It will also be

of interest to older workers themselves.
