El objetivo de este trabajo es doble. Primero, examinar las relaciones entre antecedentes y consecuencias de los empleos puente. Segundo, analizar el papel mediador de la cantidad y calidad del empleo puente en la relación entre antecedentes y consecuencias. Se obtuvieron datos de la primera fase del SHARE (Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe) de 1.190 varones y mujeres en Europa a partir de entrevistas estructuradas y cuestionarios. Los análisis de modelos de ecuaciones estructurales, incluyendo la muestra sin valores perdidos (N= 650), muestran que tanto la cantidad como la calidad de la participación en el empleo puente son predictores de la satisfacción laboral, la satisfacción vital y la calidad de vida en la jubilación. Estos resultados validan y amplían la investigación previa sobre las actividades de empleo puente y la jubilación parcial.

Bridge employment and retirees’ personal well-being. A structural equation model with a European probabilistic sample. The aim of this paper is twofold: first, to examine the relationships between antecedents and consequences of bridge employment activity; second, to analyze the mediator role both of quality and quantity of bridge employment activities in the relationship between antecedents and consequences. First wave panel data from the SHARE (Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe) were obtained from 1190 men and women in Europe, using structured interviews and questionnaires. Structural equation modeling analyses, including the sample without missing values (N= 650), showed that both quantity and quality of bridge employment participation are predictors of job satisfaction, life satisfaction, and quality of life in retirement. These results validate and expand the previous research on bridge employment activities and partial retirement.
