How do organizations ensure that its employees stay fit, motivated and productive? A policy focused on sustainable employability – or perhaps better – for permanently productive employees, is therefore not a luxury but a necessity. We are talking about employees, who are competent, involved, satisfied and vital. There is no blueprint for sustainable employability. Each organisation is unique and demands customization. Various publications about sustainable employability pay attention to healthy, satisfied, involved and competent employees as a condition for being productive. The advisors of Alympus can support you in developing and implementing sustainable employability within your organization. Keeping employees sustainable employable and lasting productive is not an easy task. In order to provide a careful and structured approach, an organization must at least have the overview. It’s necessary to monitor the development of employees within the organization.
Howden Netherlands B.V. has been using the employability monitor to full satisfaction for several years now. All the matters relating to quality certifications, talent management and competencies are transparently guaranteed in the online monitor. The employability monitor makes it easier to control on continuous improvements. This leads to increased effectiveness, improved efficiency and multi-employability. At Howden, the tool has been integrated into existing HR processes, such as education, training and the assessment system. This increases the insight into the employability of employees directly. Both the line managers and the HR department see the utility and necessity of the tool. The HR manager realizes that Howden can no longer do without the “overview”. “Developments occur so quickly that it becomes increasingly important to monitor changes well and be able to guide improvements.” Alutech Netherlands B.V. designs, manufactures and supplies aluminium and steel fuel tanks for major European manufacturers of heavy trucks and buses. Alutech uses state-of-the-art sheet metalworking machines, (robots) welding techniques and surface treatment processes. The Managing Director at Alutech Netherlands on the employability monitor: “We use the employability monitor software package for years now. This user-friendly tool has been developed through collaboration with Alympus Staff Advisory B.V.. With the employability monitor, we keep track of employee competencies both in good and in bad times, to identify bottlenecks.”
Successful organizations are able to attract, develop and maintain the right employees. Every employee possesses a talent and it is considered an art to use it to its best. With the employability monitor, organizations have insight into the current competencies of their employees and the ability to address structured development to further professionalize the job. A clear approach to personal development helps you to retain your staff and makes you an attractive employer for future employees. The monitor is accessible to both employees and executives, and provides management information on the status and quality of conversations. The employability monitor can be tailor made to fit your organization’s HR and line management cycle.
Alympus collaborates with the FME-CWM, an entrepreneurial organization for the technology industry, for more than 12 years. Meanwhile, there is an official partnership in this collaboration. This partnership complements each other’s services and products for organizations that are members of the FME-CWM, such as an experienced interim professional in reorganization projects or an ISF project. Examples of these products and services are Implementing competency- and performance management in conjunction with the employability monitor or conducting an employee research due to sustainable employability.
Within organizations, the principle of continuous learning and improvement is no longer to be considered. Processes and employees must therefore be well connected and aligned. So, organizations must know what the gaps are and which actions will lead to the solution of these gaps. These gaps will be closed by comparing the desired situation versus the reality, gap analysis and managing the audit.
