One purpose is to better understand how access to or absence of resources in one area can affect resources and capacity in other areas. We study whether there are specific patterns and practices linked to how different aspects of capability develop and relate to each other over time. The studies have system theoretical and intersectional perspectives in the analysis of interplay levels and their importance for capacity in different groups affects working and living conditions in older days. Another purpose is to study the conditions of organizations and different forms of organization in order to retain the workforce at increasingly older ages. These studies have institutional perspectives in analyzing actors' practices in different contexts. A third purpose is to describe models that have the prerequisites to strengthen them. The program uses several different methods: Experiencing retirement as a choice and breaking point in a life is explored through qualitative in-depth interviews. The existence and development of cumulative disadvantages and benefits is studied through register studies and panel data that extend over many years. Organizational capability is studied in consortia with active companies. In addition, in-depth qualitative case studies are conducted in organizations with interviews and observations. Bridging between case studies and survey studies is also done through employee surveys in the studied organizations. The program is part of the Center for Aging and Health - AGECAP and consists of researchers from the University of Gothenburg: Department of Sociology and Work Science, Department of Business Administration, Department of Psychology and Sahlgrenska Academy - in collaboration with other universities, eg Umeå University, University of Borås, University of Borås , SRH Hochschule Berlin and The MS University of Baroda and Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies.
