Toward the Employability-Link Model: Current Employment Transition to Future Employment Perspectives
Thijssen, Johannes G. L.; Van der Heijden, Beatrice I. J. M.; Rocco, Tonette S.
Human Resource Development Review, v7 n2 p165-183 2008
This article goes into a critical analysis of the concept of employability, its development across historical periods, its components, and different strategic approaches to enhance workers' employability throughout their career. Given the need for a systematic analysis and more empirical research in the field, the authors come up with the so-called employability-link model that is aimed to guide future practitioners and researchers as far as their specific choices as regard core components of the concept that ought to be made. The article concludes with a thorough onset of possible future research questions that are assumed to be of importance given the current labor market situation. The employability-link model has implications for individual and organizational career interventions aimed at increasing life-long employability. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
