Yes, I do suggest that retired people will keep going on working (not only for money) but to keep their brain alive. It is a way to go on having a social life and learn from others.
I am in high education level, although retired, I keep teaching to the Master and MBA students to share with them but also to learn from them.

The answer will have to be: Organizing our societies so that age - for most - is a promise of continued work, earning your keep, as if you were 10+ years younger. For those fewer in generally bad health worn down by work, or life-style, society has to provide.
My country, Denmark, is a case in point, not 'merely' of a Nordic country doing well (And Denmark does exceedingly well, in many aspects) - but also an example of a country, which has made a turn-around in terms or retirement. Put shortly: A policy of early retirement (meant for people worn down) ended up far too general, and generous. This - misguided - policy explains a good deal of why our average retirement age is a bit lower than other Nordics.
The turn-aorund, to be noted by other OECD-countries: As part of a broad political agreement, in 2006, the age of retirement is linked to life expectancy. The standard retirement age is now 65. In 2022 it will be 67. In 2030, it will be 68. In 2035: 69. In 2040, the normal retirement age will be 70.
Nothing, of course, prevents anyone from working 70+.
Another aspect of retirement, in Denmark is an ideally diversified pension system. People retire with incomes that range from good to impressive. Several social policies assure that those with a lower pension do not face living as poor retirees.
The indexation of the retirement age has given the country, and the political debate, a sense of security: The general ageing goes hand i hand with the provision of other policies in society.

I am convinced we will have to learn much more and gain more various skills to be eligible for better job positions in the future. People will need to learn and re-learn many times because the skills they need are different from time to time. In other words, the main rule is being flexible is the key to success in the modern-day economy and jobs market.
And it becomes more and more important to be able to represent you in the best way possible. There are too many people and too many specialists that might be as good as you are or even better. And what’s crucial in this situation is to be able to represent yourself in the best possible way. Just take a look at the job questions you need to know on That’s a lot, and you have no chance without paying attention to how well you pass a job interview.
