The current dynamic social and economic context places additional demands on both the employee and employer. Workplaces require continuous adaptation. 6,6 % of employees are in job lock. 61,4 % of those employees stay in a long term job lock. Job lockers experience more physical and mental health problems compared to those employees who successfully adapt. For the companies job lock leads to increased costs due to withdrawal behaviours and decreased productivity and job attachment. The results from the dissertation are useful to HRMs and reintegration companies for detecting employees at risk to become job locked and building preventive and curative programs.
