Research shows older workers with better working conditions retire later

21 December 2015

Researchers from the ESRC-MRC funded

ucl.ac.uk/renewl">renEWL project (Research on Extending Working Lives) have shown how working conditions can influence retirement timing among older workers. Based on data from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing, Dr Carr and colleagues found that workers with high job control or who felt their work was adequately recognised, preferred to retire later and were less likely to stop working. The full results are published in the European Journal of Ageing.
