Chapter 6 in Human Resource Management in Ageing Societies, 2008, pp 99-124 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract The willingness of older people to work is generally said to be low in Europe. Thus, in order to raise the European labour force participation rate, it is important both to motivate older people to work and to encourage firms to utilize older workers. In Japan, however, older people are relatively willing to work, so that the key determinant for the employment of older workers is the nature of company employment practices.
