Key policies to promote longer working lives in Eu Members 

The late career scoreboard presents key quantitative indicators and compares each EU member situation in 2006, before the economic and social crisis, with 2016 as well with the EU and OECD averages. It is a useful barometer of the extent of labour market inclusion of older workers.

The policy toolkit highlights good practices among EU members to encourage employers to retain and hire older workers and to promote the employability of workers in their mid- to late careers.

The 'country notes' present key policies to promote longer working lives implemented in each EU member over the past decade.  An assessment of the extent to which each EU member has progressed in implementing effective measures is included.
