    Доходи от трудова дейност след пенсиониране - Резюме

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Все по-често работниците в ЕС работят срещу възнаграждение след пенсионирането си. Тази тенденция добавя важно измерение към текущия дебат относно продължаването на трудовата дейност. Улесняването на възможностите за работа след пенсионирането за лицата, които желаят да продължат да работят, може да допринесе за обезпечаването на устойчиви пенсионни системи. Това проучване изследва мотивацията на пенсионерите да работят срещу заплащане и възможностите им да получат работа. То анализира в каква степен работата след пенсионирането е свързана с адекватността на доходите на пенсионерите, както и какви видове платена работа приемат пенсионерите, и установява подходите, които дружествата използват, за да привлекат и задържат на работа пенсионери. В заключение докладът съдържа препоръки към правителствата, работодателите и пенсионерите.
