Europe’s future economic competitiveness and prosperity depends crucially on its ability to fully utilise its labour resources including through the extension of employment periods over the life course. In addition, demographic ageing is one of the driving forces behind the Europe 2020 employment target to increase labour force participation across the EU.
For social support systems to remain viable as Europe’s population ages, more people need to work and stay in work for longer over their lifetimes. To achieve this the adoption of appropriate, age-sensitive policies and practice that enable and encourage older workers to remain in or re-enter the labour market must achieved.
