Sustainable employability is a company policy which takes the specific circumstances and wishes of staff members into account. Sustainable employability obviously focuses on both young and old, and takes into account the different phases in life and careers of staff members.
It’s important for organisations that all staff remain employable. Employable staff respond better to any adjustments of their tasks, change in their career, and developments within the organisation.
Sustainable employability starts on a new employee’s first working day, right at the on-boarding. Preventing any problems is preferred over intervention when things go wrong. To make an unmotivated employee enthusiastic again is hard and it’s impossible to heal worn-out back. The more thought out sustainable employability is implemented, the better the results will be for the employer. If an employer takes this into account and responds to it, sustainable employability could even improve productivity.
