Abstract

"With the long-term trend toward earlier retirement slowing down, and the majority of older workers remaining in employment up to and beyond statutory retirement ages, it is increasingly important that we understand how to react to these changes. Bridge Employment patterns and activities have changed greatly over the past decade yet there is little information about the benefits of the various different forms this can take, both for employees and employers.The reasons for Bridge Employment are diverse, but the benefits both for the individuals and for organizations are considerable: from satisfaction in retirement, to financial security and economic well-being in later life, and the retention of skills and experience by organizations. Drawing on international research expertise, this book offers a comprehensive overview and analysis of bridge employment in Europe and the US, and summarises the psychological, psychosocial, organizational and social benefits for employees, employers and society.Reflecting the current debate in many countries about the ageing labour force and costs of retirement, this book provokes debate and reflection for both organizational decisions and public policies. It will provide a fascinating read for scholars and researchers in HR, organizational studies and public policy"--
