The key aims of the review were to find out from the existing body of research: * What are the current patterns of employment of older men and older women? * What kind of flexible work options do older female and older male workers need, what informs their needs, and what are the barriers - including pension arrangements - to their taking up flexible and part-time work? * What would happen to patterns of employment for older women and older men if flexible working were more widely available? * What needs to be done to achieve more flexibility for older workers? The review consisted of three elements: a comprehensive review of existing literature from governmental and non-governmental sources; secondary analysis of existing datasets, especially the Labour Force Survey; and theme building to identify the key issues associated with older workers, gender and flexible employment.
