Abstract [en]

This paper explores the relationship between the prolongation of working life and subjective health. Drawing on a unique combination of longitudinal data and the results of a postal survey in Sweden, we investigate the health consequences of extending working life beyond the normal retirement age of 65. To do this, we compare the health status of two groups of retired people: one group who left the labour market completely at the age of 65, and a second group who remained in employment after the age of 65. Using a standard linear probability model and controlling for a range of socio-economic variables as well as previous labour market experiences, perceived life expectancy, pre-retirement income and health, our estimations show that those continuing to work after 65 on average display a 6.8% higher probability of reporting better health during retirement than those leaving at the age of 65. However, we find that this positive correlation between the extension of working life and health is only transitory. After 6 years of retirement, the health advantage of working after the normal retirement age disappears. Furthermore, we did not find any evidence that working after the age of 65 is positively correlated with physical fitness, self-reported depressive symptoms or well-being.

Abstract [en]

One of the basic elements of the Swedish model is a strong contractual tradition and the crucial role played by the social partners in mechanisms for regulating labour market, working conditions and wage formation. The bipartite and contractual nature of labour market regulations coupled with the high union density and high coverage rate of collective bargaining create a favourable institutional environment for the emergence of negotiated compromises aimed at balancing flexibility and security in the labour market. Sweden constitutes, therefore, a good illustration of a flexicurity regime based on negotiated flexibility and largely explains why Sweden remains a country with decent working conditions, low income disparities and extended social justice. A compressed wage structure with relatively high wage floors have also prevented the development of low-skilled jobs in Sweden and instead have boosted policies favouring skill upgrading. In effect, large investment in research and development, a well-developed lifelong learning as well as a more balanced bargaining power between the two sides of industry have limited the tendency towards job and class polarisation in Sweden.

Abstract [sv]

Dagens generation av svenskar i åldersgruppen 65–74 år har en högre sysselsättningsgrad än tidigare generationer. I den här artikeln analyseras seniorernas motiv till att fortsätta att arbeta och varför andra går i pension, med fokus på vilka socioekonomiska faktorer som påverkar beslutet att fortsätta arbeta efter 65. Vi undersöker även om det finns vissa personlighets- och karaktärsdrag som utmärker de arbetande seniorerna, samt om det finns ett samband mellan arbete efter 65 och den allmänna tillfredsställelsen med livet.

Abstract [sv]

Under den senaste tiden har sociala hänsyn vid offentlig upphandling blivit allt vanligare. En specifik form av sociala hänsyn vid offentlig upphandling är sysselsättningskrav där upphandlande myndigheter ställer specifika krav på att företagen ska anställa individer som står långt från arbetsmarknaden, exempelvis långtidsarbetslösa, lågutbildade och arbetslösa ungdomar m.m.

I Sverige framstår sysselsättningskravet främst som ett komplement till arbetsmark-nadspolitiken där Arbetsförmedlingen eller kommunala arbetsförmedlare har en central roll för att fördela anställningsstöd till långtidsarbetslösa. Sysselsättnings-kravets påverkan på sysselsättningsgrad och arbetslöshet för hela arbetsmarknaden är osäker. Även om det i efterhand kan konstateras att ett visst antal personer ur målgruppen har anställts inom ramarna för upphandlingen, och sysselsättnings-kravet därmed är uppfyllt, kan sysselsättningen på den lokala arbetsmarknaden både öka eller minska, på grund av direkta och indirekta effekter på företagens rekryteringsbeteende, andra företag i regionen och individuella incitament att söka jobb. Det ställs därför relativt stora krav på en utvärdering för att kunna svara på frågan hur sysselsättningskravet påverkar sysselsättningen på arbetsmarknaden.

Sysselsättningskravets syfte, målsättning och målgrupp bör anges i början av upphandlingsprojektet. Dessutom bör det explicit anges vilken anställningsform som avses (anställningskontrakt, arbetstid, anställningens längd). En utvärdering bör inkludera en jämförelsegrupp av utförande företag med anställda som inte omfattas av sysselsättningskrav vid upphandlingen. Det är endast genom att jämföra utfallet mellan de två grupperna (behandlingsgruppen och kontroll-gruppen) som det går att uttala sig om sysselsättningskravets inverkan på sysselsättningen och arbetslösheten i regionen. En utvärdering bör involveras i planeringsstadiet av ett upphandlingsprojekt med sysselsättningskrav. Behovet av insamling av data under projektet är omfattande och upphandlingens organisation, syfte och målsättning bör vara tydlig för alla parter. En tänkbar modell är att den upphandlande myndigheten ger en extern utvärderingskonsult i uppdrag att följa upphandlingen och genomföra utvärderingen som en integrerad del av projektet. Det kan etableras allmänna riktlinjer och erfarenheter för hur en utvärdering ska genomföras, där utvärderingskonsulten har en viktig roll i att förmedla dessa erfarenheter. Samtidigt måste utvärderingskonsulten vara lyhörd för särskilda omständigheter och villkor i den aktuella utvärderingen. Utvärderingen kan alltså inte följa en fast modell, eftersom det finns en uppenbar risk att utvärderingen då enbart upplevs som en administrativ börda utan egentlig nytta för de inblandade parterna. Uppföljningar av upphandlingen bör ske inom en relativt kort tidshori-sont, för att kartlägga eventuella förbättringsåtgärder i samarbetet mellan de tre parterna. För att kartlägga upphandlingens effekter på sysselsättningen krävs dock en längre tidshorisont där arbetstagare och arbetsgivare kan följas under en längre tid efter att upphandling har genomförts.

Abstract [en]

The research project addresses three main questions: Who are the persons that continue to work after “normal” retirement age? What are their motivations? What are the consequences for the individual and for society? To answer these questions we perform an analysis of external and internal factors affecting the choice to stay after 65 years on the labour market or to leave earlier. Among external factors we investigate are: The impact of the prevailing labour laws and regulations on senior citizens’ participation on the labour market ; The socio-economic factors that affect the likelihood to stay on the labour market after the age of 65 ; The impact of employers’ human resource strategies on the possibility for senior workers to remain on the labour market after the age of 65 years. We also analyse the the role of individ specific factors such as motivation and , personal traits but the outcome in terms of subjective well-being and health.

Abstract [en]

Using a gender perspective and a comparative approach, this paper assesses the extent to which national care regimes and family policies interact and impact upon female employment outcomes. We restrict our analysis to Australia, France and Sweden, three advanced market economies with contrasting employment and care regimes. For the employment regime we focus on paid work across the life course and we focus on parental leave and childcare as indicative of the care regime.  Previous comparative studies have clearly shown that the gender division of labour between paid work, care and domestic activities is strongly dependent on prevailing societal norms and the institutional and societal context, in particular the characteristics of the parental leave systems, the availability and cost of childcare services, the provision of care when older people become partially or fully dependent, and more globally on employment and working time regimes and the design of tax and family policies. Our central argument is therefore that family and care policies play a crucial role in shaping the patterns of men’s and women’s employment. The comparison shows the importance of institutional arrangements and that lack of affordable child care facilities and poor parental leave arrangements across the life course reduce female, particularly maternal, labour supply both in terms of labour force participation and working time participation.
