Old and out? Not necessarily! The research in this thesis shows how employees stay employable as they age. In contrast to common workplace stereotypes, one's chronological age per se does not matter. Instead, being open to future career opportunities and engaging in learning activities are essential. Especially one's social network of colleagues at work is a powerful source for learning. This, in turn, helps to remain attractive in the labour market. The implications presented in this research project help managers, policy-makers, and older individuals to thrive in midst of the demographic shift.
