Abstract

Motivations to learn at older stages of a career are important in shedding light on types of learning and development seen as valuable and valid to both older workers and management. Therefore, finding ways to meet the learning needs of older workers to encourage extended working lives is pertinent. This chapter explores the major theories of workplace learning and human flourishing, workplace learning connected to lifelong learning for older workers, and sustained employability and motivation of older workers. Links are made between workplace learning and lifelong learning and how it might be further cultivated. Definitions and participation rates in workplace learning are explored. Participation and motivation of older workers in their own learning needs is considered. Critical social theory is explored through Habermasian ideal speech theories, giving older workers a voice.
