Worldwide developments, including economic and health crises, global competition, technological developments, and demographic changes prompt a highly dynamic and hard-to-predict labour market. Over time, part of the workforce is thus expected, requested or forced to leave their current jobs. Along with the risk of (future) job loss, a vulnerability and risk of unemployment among employees develops. The aim of this book is to broaden the employer perspective towards a responsibility of keeping employees at risk of unemployment in employment as much as possible and to discover the various ways (how), contextual factors (when) and considerations (why) that underlie this. This includes the circumstances under which HR formulates and adopts policies and practices aiming to secure employment, both within and outside organizational boundaries, and the motives for adopting such policies and practices. The research follows a multidisciplinary approach and operates at the intersection of Strategic Human Resource Management, Labour Economics and Social Policy.
This book addresses overarching themes such as the vision of HR that expands beyond organizational boundaries, organizational values that extend beyond short-term financial targets, and the added value of operating in an inclusive network economy.
