Redesign the Workplace for Happier, Healthier Employees—www.aarp.org
30 March 2012—www.aarp.org—More people are working past age 60, and in the next 10 years the number of workers age 65 and over is expected to increase from 7.7 million to 12.9 million. Some will stay employed because they can’t afford to retire, others because they enjoy what they do or want to stay busy.
A 2011 study from the Sloan Center on Aging & Work at Boston College found that workers 40 and older are the most engaged and the most committed to their employers, while workers 50 and older are the most satisfied.
