Działalność gospodarcza starszych pracowników a stan zdrowia : implikacja zarządzania wiekiem
Języki publikacji
With regard to demographic ageing, there is an increasing need to study and understand the factors affecting labour market participation beyond age 50. The present study focuses on the relation between late employment (economic activity) and health condition among the Czech population aged 60+ with respect to gender. The control group used consists of Czechs aged 50-59 with the relation between economic activity and health condition with respect to gender is also investigated. The findings also showed that the health status of economically active Czech seniors in both age groups is worse than that of economically inactive ones. This outcome is in contradiction of previous researches which have found that poor health is the most frequently cited reason for an early exit from labour market to early retirement. Also these findings emphasize the increasing need of implementation of age management on the organizational as well as on the national level.
Rozważając starzenie się społeczeństwa, istnieje coraz większa potrzeba zbadania i zrozumienia czynników wpływających na uczestnictwo w rynku pracy po 50. roku życia. Niniejsze badanie koncentruje się na związku między późnym zatrudnieniem (działalność gospodarcza) a stanem zdrowia wśród ludności czeskiej w wieku 60+ z uwzględnieniem płci. Grupa kontrolna składa się z Czechów w wieku 50-59 lat, przy czym bada się również związek między aktywnością zawodową a stanem zdrowia w odniesieniu do płci. Wyniki pokazały, że stan zdrowia aktywnych ekonomicznie czeskich seniorów w obu grupach wiekowych jest gorszy niż stan biernych zawodowo. Wynik ten stoi w sprzeczności z wcześniejszymi badaniami, które wykazały, że zły stan zdrowia jest najczęstszym powodem wczesnego wyjścia z rynku pracy na wcześniejszą emeryturę. Wyniki te podkreślają również rosnącą potrzebę wdrożenia zarządzania wiekiem zarówno na poziomie organizacyjnym, jak i krajowym.
