Abstract: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.
