The results indicate that many early retirements are often work-related and that it is in the workplace that things must happen to increase labor force participation among the elderly, especially among the groups of the elderly where work capacity or motivation decreases at the end of working life.
- In practice, this presupposes the employers' participation in ensuring a good working environment and the ability to, for example, provide adjustments in the work concerning working hours, work tasks and workload. In other words, individuals' ability to continue working is affected by whether their employer is passive or proactive in adapting the business to the needs and wishes of older employees, says Robin Jonsson.
Describe your years as a SWEAH PhD student!
- For me as a doctoral student, SWEAH has contributed to a social context, provided financial conditions for activities and a network outside my own learning environment. I now look forward to continuing in SWEAH in my postdoc assignment and the network formed for us alumni.
What are you going to do now?
