The purpose of this volume is to describe the impact of the increased demand for flexibility on employees and its impact on their individual work life trajectories and health. The volume offers concrete examples of interventions aimed to find innovative ways of sustainable work careers for today's workers. We focus on the school to work transition, job insecurity, job loss and re-employment and retirement. The interventions described offer strategies for implementing support in employment contracts, increasing preparedness of individual employees with public education programs or developing work arrangements and support systems in work organizations.

"The volume promises to be a valuable resource for students in need of a general introduction to current labour-market transformations, and provides an extensive literature review of various aspects of working life. Most chapters commence with a presentation of the main concepts and provide sufficient background references and literature. ... it also functions as a valuable gateway for policymakers and organizations towards evidence-based interventions, with a focus on sustainable employment relations and healthy workers."
