    Abstract

    The objective of this study is to explore in what way age is related to employability, workability and vitality of workers, and whether these relationships are influenced by the lifelong learning as perceived by workers. We analyze data from a survey among 178 employees from Dutch primary schools. Results reveal that age and employees' employability are positively related, but not age and workability or vitality. Lifelong learning is positively related to all three aspects of sustainable employment: employability, workability, and vitality. Finally, the interaction between age and lifelong learning showed significant effects for employability and workability. This means that older workers keep their employability and work ability, when they are interested in and perceive more possibilities for lifelong learning.
