About this course

Due to demographic changes across Europe, there are strong political interests in maintaining the labour force by prolonging working life.

This NIVA course provides participants with theoretical knowledge on push and stay factors for labour market participation among senior workers and discusses how this knowledge can be used for practical purposes.

Please note!

We will do our utmost to arrange courses, even in these exceptional times.  We have the readiness to arrange courses with modified concepts, allowing smaller groups to meet, in some cases national groups, and the possibility to participate on-line. 

Our cancellation policy is generous, so it is safe to enroll to a course well in advance and cancel participation if the situation makes it difficult or risky to travel.

Course objectives

  • Provide participants with theoretical knowledge on push and stay factors for labour market participation among senior workers
  • Discuss how this knowledge can be used to prolong working life in different target groups (different sectors, long vs short education, seated vs physically demanding work)

The course will cover push and stay factors for labour market participation across the following topics:

  • Psychosocial working environment
  • Physical working environment
  • Age-discrimination at workplaces
  • Gradual retirement (possibility for reduce working time or responsibility)
  • Competencies and continuing education/training of skills
  • New technologies at the workplace
  • Lifestyle and health
  • Senior policies at the workplace
  • Working life expectancy

Push factors can be understood as negative factors, e.g. poor working environment, poor health, that pushes people out of the labour market, and stay factors as the opposite, positive factors that can motivate people to stay at work e.g. a good social climate, interesting work etc

Target groups

  • PhD students
  • Researchers
  • Occupational health professionals

Subject background

Due to demographic changes across Europe, there are strong political interests in maintaining the labour force by prolonging working life, i.e. increasing retirement age. In 2018 we have initiated a new PEROSH project ‘Prolonging Working Life’ as a collaboration across 8 European countries.

To better guide initiatives for maintaining older workers at the labour market across Europe, this PEROSH project aims to determine push and stay factors for labour market participation of older workers across different European countries with different regulations and cultures. Participants at the course will benefit from the knowledge gathered in this project.
