Abstract

This article presents a review on the link between aging, cognitive capacities, productivity and employability of older workers. Especially, our aim consists in analysing the extent to which technological and organisational changes over the ten years ? mainly due to the introduction of computers within enterprises ? have affected the demand of labour for older workers. Complex interactions between characteristics specific to the employee with those specific to the enterprise explain the absence of significant statistical relation between productivity and age of the worker. However, both the level and the type of educational background together with motivation appear crucial determinants of older worker?s employability, as conditioning his adaptability for using new techniques and productive methods. In particular, the system of incentives for investing in human capital may play an important role both for older workers and the enterprise. JEL classification: O33, J23, J14, J24.
