If you can carry on being a valuable asset in the workplace, you and your employer will reap the benefits. A growing number of employers are paying attention to sustainable employability for this exact reason. Nevertheless, it’s still your own responsibility. So, how do you manage your employability in the long run?
The term “Sustainable employability” has only emerged in recent years. It was introduced around 2017, when governments and employers became aware of the impact that demographic, economic and technological developments have on the labour market. Ageing is a good example that causes the average professional lifespan of the workforce and the retirement age to rise, which calls for more attention to the health and vitality of employees. Yet, sustainable employability goes beyond just this.
