Towards age-friendly work in Europe: a life-course perspective on work and ageing from EU Agencies

Printer-friendly version

The ageing of the EU’s population and workforce has implications for employment, working conditions, living standards and welfare. This report draws on the expertise of four EU Agencies in their respective areas, covers the policy challenges associated with the ageing workforce and considers innovative solutions. EU-OSHA presents policy examples of integrated approaches to occupational safety and health for an ageing workforce. Eurofound examines working conditions for workers of all ages, related work sustainability outcomes and how the right policies can foster longer working lives. Cedefop explores how vocational education and training can be used to support active ageing at work. EIGE provides a gender perspective on the issue of the ageing workforce and discusses the different challenges that men and women face. The report also outlines the impact of long-term demographic trends on employment, and examines lifelong participation in learning. This is followed by a call for active ageing solutions that ensure older workers remain active, skilled and employed.
