Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.

Design/methodology/approach

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

Increasing employability is important for both individuals and organizations in a fast-paced and changing business world. Increased learning helps employees improve their skills, abilities, and knowledge, which in turn increases their competence and confidence, and increases their perception of their employability, as well as the perception of their supervisors. Organizations can invest in their employees by providing high-involvement human resource practices which encourage involvement, support, trust, and autonomy. This in turn increases positive learning behaviors, which leads to increased employability and thus improved outcomes for employees and the organization as a whole.

Originality/value

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
