Propensity to continue working: An emerging model for older individuals
MetadataShow full item record
Like other OECD countries, Australia has an ageing workforce and one key challenge is the looming predicted labour shortage. Extending the working lives of older people has been suggested as a partial solution, yet while extensive research has been conducted into retirement decisions, little is known about the intentions of older people to continue working. This paper describes some findings from an Australian study, and combined with previous research, proposes a model identifying the positive and negative factors affecting the propensity of older individuals to continue working.
