Increased life expectancy has resulted in improved health and quality of life, which has accelerated global demographic aging. This phenomenon is a significant source of concern for any country in the 21st century. Simultaneously, several policies have been implemented in a variety of areas, most notably the one advocated by the United Nations—Active Aging—which aims to maintain citizens' active participation in their communities for an extended period, as well as lifelong learning, health, and safety, including in the workforce context. In this chapter, the authors employed a research methodology consisting of two distinct phases, namely scientometrics and web-scraping, to analyze the predefined keywords “aging”/“ageing” and “work” in the context of a business environment. The results presented indicate that the interest in this theme has grown substantially. On the other hand, the keywords investigated are interconnected with other sub-areas, demonstrating the wide dissemination of this study area.
