This report is organised into six chapters. After a introductory chapter, Chapter 2 presents the contexts of the countries participating in the study and in Chapter 3 a theoretical framework is presented. Chapter 4 provides the methodological background. In Chapter 5 the results are presented of subsequently employers’ perspectives on extending working lives in the own organisation, organisational policies towards older workers, public policies and employers’ ‘double standards’. The final chapter summarizes our findings and discusses the outcomes. In the final chapter we also discuss the limitations of the study and provide suggestions for future research.
