Abstract [en]

Many countries face aging populations, and this is accompanied by discussions of how people can stayemployed later in life. This raises the question of how organizations can attract, retain, and develop olderworkers for productive working lives. This paper presents a study in Sweden of pensioners’ motives forparticipating in work and learning activities. Of 232 individuals, 83 (35.8 %) had worked after retirement,but only four had worked full time. The main motives for continuing to work and learn were (1) stayingactive, (2) social contact, and (3) the content of the activity. The motive of staying active, which reflects adesire to stay healthy, might be enhanced with age and is rarely included in discussions about workmotivation. Using self-determination theory to interpret the results, a suggestion is that organizationsshould use separate strategies for organizing work and learning for younger and older workers.
