Increased retirement age - what is required to work longer? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Sveriges befolkning lever allt längre och därav har en ny överenskommelse gällande pension utformats för att kunna upprätthålla den svenska ekonomin. Pensionsåldern kommer att höjas och för att äldre ska orka arbeta längre behövs en god arbetsmotivation och rätt förutsättningar. Syftet med denna studie var därför att undersöka vad äldre arbetstagare upplever som viktigt för att orka och vilja arbeta längre. Nio semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med arbetstagare över 60 år som var yrkesverksamma inom olika branscher. Intervjuerna analyserades med en induktiv tematisk analys. Äldre arbetstagare motiveras framförallt av inre motivationsfaktorer som trivsel på arbetsplatsen och goda relationer till kollegor. Ett fortsatt arbetsliv kan enligt respondenterna också påverkas av delaktighet och utvecklingsmöjligheter på arbetsplatsen. Möjligheten till utveckling i arbetet kan påverkas av de förutsättningar som arbetstagaren ges men arbetstagaren har samtidigt ett eget ansvar att ta till vara på utvecklingsmöjligheterna.

Abstract [en]

The population of Sweden tends to live longer and therefore a new agreement about the retirement age has been designed to maintain the Swedish economy. The retirement age will increase and to make older employees cope with a longer worklife it´s important to maintain a good work motivation and also give the employees the right conditions to be able to work longer. The purpose of this study was therefore to study what employees perceive as important to be able and willing to work longer. Nine semi-structured interviews were performed with employees over 60 years old and were professionals in different industries. The interviews were analysed with an inductive thematic analysis. Older employees are primarily motivated by intrinsic factors such as well-being at work and good relations with colleagues. Participation and development opportunities were important factors to be able to work longer. The opportunity for development at work can be affected by the conditions given to the employee, but the employee also has his own responsibility to take advantage of the development opportunities
