Abstract title

Sustainable employability is a new policy theme in the Netherlands to keep all employees healthy and productively employed until old age pension. The concept includes employees’ responsibility for health, education and mobility, and the enthusiasm of employers for creating optimal working conditions and prevention of premature leave. Policy makers aim to improve sustainable employability to increase the competitiveness of the Dutch economy and to decrease (costs of) unemployment as a consequence of employee disability, early retirement, and insufficient labor market mobility. Sustainable employability is measured by a sustainable employability profile (SE-profile) containing 17 indicators, describing both employer and employee characteristics. The SE-Profile has been derived from Kraan et al. (2011). This research note shows examples of regional differences in the distribution of characteristics of sustainable employment and elaborates on these differences by relating them to other regional characteristics. It furthermore provides suggestions for policy implementations at the regional level.
