Abstract: Increased automation, globalization, and longevity demand new thinking by employers and employees regarding productivity. Throughout the lifespan, fuller engagement in education and paid and unpaid productive activities can generate a wealth of benefits, including better health and well-being, greater financial security, and a more vital society. We review challenges and opportunities to advance long, healthy, and productive lives. When possible, we review inequities by gender, race, ethnicity, and other social determinants of health to reveal heterogeneity within the growing U.S. population and workforce. We conclude with implications for research, social policy, advocacy, education, and practice.
