OECD Issues Summary Report on Aging and Employment Policies

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has issued a report--"Live Longer, Work Longer"--that draws out the main lessons that have emerged from the OECD's 21 country reviews in its series on "Ageing and Employment Policies." To help meet the daunting challenges posed by employment and social policies, practices and attitudes that discourage work at an older age, work needs to be made a more attractive and rewarding proposition for older workers. This report disucsses, among other things, work disincentives and barriers to employment, removing work disincentives and increasing choice in work-retirement decisions, changing employer attitudes and employment practices, and improving employability.
