    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Desfăşurarea unei activităţi remunerate după pensionare devine din ce în ce mai frecventă în rândul lucrătorilor din UE. Această tendinţă adaugă o dimensiune importantă discursului actual privind prelungirea vieţii active. Facilitarea muncii după pensionare pentru persoanele care doresc să lucreze poate contribui la sisteme de pensii viabile. Acest studiu analizează motivaţia pensionarilor de a căuta un loc de muncă remunerat şi posibilităţile acestora de a-l obţine. Studiul examinează măsura în care munca după pensionare are legătură cu nivelul adecvat al veniturilor în rândul populaţiei de pensionari. De asemenea, studiul analizează tipurile de locuri de muncă remunerate pe care le ocupă pensionarii şi identifică modalităţile în care întreprinderile încearcă să recruteze pensionarii şi să îi menţină în post. Raportul se încheie cu recomandări adresate guvernelor, angajatorilor şi pensionarilor.
