Note conclusive

Di certo, come a lungo analizzato, l’employability ricopre un ruolo molto importante nell ‘analisi delle nuove competenze dei lavoratori. Il modello è ricco di dati imprescindibili in un contesto flessibile, tuttavia un’osservazione di fondi e in via conclusiva è d’obbligo.

Le variabili comprese nel DME sono tutte da leggere in un’ottica di sacrificio per il lavoratore e mai costituiscono uno slancio dell’azienda con interventi di tutela e supporto nei suoi confronti.

Elementi come la proattività ad esempio devono esser stimolati dall’azienda con la messa in atto di comportamenti che stimolino le motivazioni individuali.

Le variabili contenute nel DME quindi, sono in gran parte da inquadrare in un’ottica pro aziendale e in nessun caso mostrano uno slancio all’azione da parte della’azienda nei confronti del lavoratore.

I risultati empirici sull’employability lasciano comunque ben sperare, soprattutto in vista di formulazioni future sul tema che sappiano implementare quei limiti che si riscontrano oggi.
