SASSI-Working On addresses the demand for effective, age-sensitive and revitalising approaches to career management for people who want to, or have to, keep on working into their 60s, 70s and beyond.
As life expectancy in the EU increases, people face lengthy periods of retirement, with proportionally less pension provision, unless they stay economically active for longer. People need to work longer – and frequently would like to work longer.
However, longer working lives raises key challenges in determining and managing later life careers, both for employers and for older workers. Retaining older workers and maintaining motivation and productivity are becoming critical concerns for both employers and older people alike.
“Guidance and counselling is crucial for longer and more satisfying careers by supporting ageing people in terms of learning, career development and employability”.
