    Inkomst av arbete efter pensionering - Sammanfattning

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Det blir allt vanligare att arbetstagare i EU börjar förvärvsarbeta efter pensioneringen. Denna tendens är en viktig aspekt i den pågående debatten om att människor måste arbeta längre. Att göra det lättare att arbeta för personer som vill arbeta efter pensioneringen kan bidra till hållbara pensionssystem. I denna undersökning utforskas skälen till varför pensionärer kan vilja förvärvsarbeta och deras möjligheter att bli anställda. Här undersöks i vilken utsträckning arbete efter pensioneringen handlar om att pensionärer måste dryga ut sina inkomster. Man tittar också på vilken typ av förvärvsarbete som pensionärer utför och fastställer hur företag försöker rekrytera och behålla pensionärer. Rapporten avslutas med rekommendationer till stater, arbetsgivare och pensionärer.
