Next generation work
Classic career management is limited to the context of the organization with a focus on upward mobility and retention. Longer working life, combined with a fast evolving business context, demands innovative solutions for sustainable careers.
Experience@work, a collaboration between several large businesses, breaks this image and focuses on opportunities for older employees to start working in a different organization – usually a social profit organization or SME – while keeping their labor contract. This offers the opportunity of new challenges and renewed commitment for the employee, while the hiring organization gets the opportunity to contract a senior profile for whom they would not normally have the means.
At the same time, this step outside the organization is not an obvious choice for older employees. In a first phase, this project investigates the factors that influence a successful transition. In a second phase, we are currently investigating the incentives that can increase the target group’s interest for such a career move as well as barriers that must be removed.
Phase 1 (2017): interviews with older employees who started working at another organization through Experience@Work, with their former and their current manager.
Phase 2 (2019): focus groups with the target group of older employees in some of the organizations concerned to map out incentives and barriers.
