Examples of policies to improve employment options and education

The European Observatory of Working Life (EurWORK) has highlighted that national active ageing policies must support ongoing skills development and validation of existing competencies on the basis that lifelong learning and ongoing skills development are key to supporting sustainable employability for older workers and the workforce at large (Farrelly, 2013).

Flexible working options for older people, such as gradual retirement or part-time work, can be encouraged by ensuring that such work is incentivized and not penalized by relevant tax and pension rules. However, it is also important that such policies increase rather than reduce older adults control over their retirement transitions. It is also important that flexible work practices are accompanied by basic employment rights, to ensure that they are not associated with increased mental distress or risk of poverty (Platman, 2004).
