The (not so) new career paradigm

Noemi Nagy

The “new career paradigm” is a popular concept in organisational literature and posits that today’s career has significantly changed in comparison to the last century, with careers being more diverse and people engaging in more downward and lateral job changes and changes of occupation. Canadian researchers now tested these assertions by comparing career mobility patterns across four generations of workers. They observed significant differences in job mobility and organisational mobility across generations, with younger generations being more mobile. However, despite the increased mobility of younger employees, the diversity of career patterns has not undergone a significant shift.

A whole-life perspective helps to promote work-life balance - Or does it?

Domingo Valero

Giving high importance to multiple life roles (e.g., work, family, leisure) is generally related to better work-life balance. But not always! This applies most strongly for individuals who perceive themselves as highly employable, according to research by American organizational psychologists. They explain their finding arguing that if you are highly employable, you can use this resource to negotiate a better work-life balance with your employer. So, train your skills... and then use your employability to increase your well-being!
