We study job retention rates – the shares of workers who continue to work in the same job over the next five years – in Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. Job retention among older workers is key to prolonging careers and increasing employment of older people which in turn is a crucial challenge for these countries. We find that the retention rates among workers aged 55-59 are low as they amount to about a half of the retention rates among prime aged workers. Only in Poland the retention rates of older workers have increased for both men and women between 1998 and 2013. We find that the individuals least likely to retain their jobs after the age of 60, were women, those with lower educational level, those in agriculture or industry, in lower-skilled occupations, and those living with a non-working partner. Our research implies that the policies aimed at encouraging job retention in Central and Eastern Europe should focus on these groups of workers.
