The main purpose of this study is to illustrate how, within the nursing profession, work ability can be deteriorated by a job alienation mechanism which acts differently according to age. From the total number of nurses participating in the NEXT Study, a sample of 27,146 nurses was selected. In addition to age, “Job demands”, “Job control” and “Harassment at work” were considered as determinants of job alienation. “Overcommitment”, “Uncertainty about patients' treatment” and “Work meaning” were used as symptoms of job alienation. Finally, “Work Ability Index” (WAI) was employed as the outcome variable. A structural equation model was used to test the job alienation hypothesis. The model demonstrated a good fit with the data. Overcommitment, uncertainty about patients' treatment and work meaning had a direct effect on WAI. High job de...
The employability of workers enables organizations to meet their fluctuating demands for numerical and functional flexibility, two very important factors for organizations to remain competitive in today's dynamic markets. Clear definitions and measurement instruments for the concept of employability are needed to facilitate this process, and are a prerequisite for different HRM policies and activities to stimulate the employability of employees. Aging workers are extra at risk to meet the modern and faster changing demands of today's (labor) market. In the present study, a valid and reliable instrument for measuring employability is presented and the employability of different age groups is studied. Supervisors do rate over-fifties less employable as these employees rate themselves.
