Title: Active Aging in the Workplace and the Role of Intelligent Technologies
Abstract: The ageing population and shrinking pool of labor is posing a critical threat to sustainable economic capacities of many developed and developing countries. The challenge calls for new aging technologies, particularly AI innovations, to be introduced to enable aging-workforce good health, aging labor market participation, and aging-worker security known as active aging in the workplace. This paper provides a synthetic overview of the current research and application of AI technologies for active aging in the workplace (AAiW). It analyzes the literature in the AAiW context, with a special focus on three dimensions (health, participation and security) under the WHO’s active aging framework. It further examines how the intelligent technologies can help older people stay healthy for longer in the workplace, and organizations better deal with an aging workforce. The findings from the literature are consolidated to provide insights into the factors that hamper active aging, and to identify the measures that enhance health, participation and security of older people in and beyond the workplace with the advancement of intelligent technologies.
