AIAS Lunch Seminar 8 oktober - Helen Kopnina - AIAS

Chronically Ill Employees and Human Resource Management Policy in The Netherlands.

Abstract:
Recent EU initiatives promote employability of the growing number of the chronically ill and disabled employees. While the Human Resource Managers (HRM) and (line) managers could play a significant role in the prevention of job-related problems and in promotion of early job-continuation, the chronically ill remain largely invisible as a group. Unlike some other groups, distinguished by gender, age or ethnicity, chronically ill are less distinct, seen as less homogenous and are thus less ‘visible’ to the employers and HRM. Yet, the chronically ill, including both physical and psychological patients do form a group with distinct characteristics and aims.

Our research among the employers and HRM in The Netherlands aims to disclose the causes of invisibility of the chronically ill as a group and to deepen the understanding of the chronically ill employees as a distinct diversity group. We argue that educational intervention (in teh form of speclialized module) is needed at the level of HRM specialization of university and/or professional education institutions to increase HRM’s involvement in addressing the problems of chronically ill employees.
