The comparison of the active and employed population aged 55 and over in Spain yielded unfavorable balances in relation to other EU territories, especially with the countries of the north and some of the central-west. This led the authors to propose a second report on Senior Citizens Working in European Companies whose objective is to find out what is being done in other countries with respect to this segment of the working population.
To quantify and characterize the senior citizen population, it was used the same threshold as in the first report, that is, those aged 55 or over, with data from Finland, Sweden, Poland, Germany, France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Spain and Italy. These nine countries represent 80% of the total population of the EU. For each of these countries, this report addresses a topic with three major components: sociodemographic, legislation and good business practices.
