Research Unit II investigates which conditions facilitate sustainable employability in different phases of working life.

The employability of workers depends on many interacting and constantly changing factors. The analyses focus firstly on the quality of vocational and academic pathways leading to employment, current qualification trends as well as further training and skill acquisition in working life. Secondly, the organisation of work, working and employment conditions, the quality of work as well as workers’ health and motivation are studied. Our recommendations are based on practice-oriented labour research.
