Vitality Management: You do not need to be ill, to get better! Enhancing the sustainable employment of workers can be realized by increasing their vitality, workability and employability

The working population is ageing in the Netherlands. To overcome the negative effects of an aging labour force, there is a need to adapt Strategic Human Resource Management in organizations by including Vitality Management. In this shortened version of my inaugural lecture I discuss from the viewpoint of a Work and Organizational Psychologist the content of Vitality Management. Vitality is in my view an aspect of sustainable employment, next to work ability and employability. Moreover in this contribution attention will be paid to the importance of vitality and sustainable employment and what causes, according to the research literature, vitality and sustainable employment. I will end this contribution by discussing how vitality and sustainable employment can be enhanced. For the latter it is important to focus not only on older workers, but on all workers from young to old.
