The modern mechanisms of extending work activity based on example of chosen countries
The paper investigates main pathways of removing work disincentives and barriers to extending work activity of older people. Many activities have to be done to cope with disadvantages of old pension systems, change employer attitudes and improve employability. Complementary initiatives need to include new legislations in main areas of interests like: labour market, healthcare, social security, and lifelong learning. Examples of good practices from Finland, Japan and United Kingdom are used to analyse the most important elements of effective strategies. The paper can be a base for evaluation of new Polish strategy for increase participation of people aged 50+.
