Introduction Despite the increasing importance of employability or career potential for governments, employers, and employees, scientific research about how employability can be acquired, developed, and sustained over the full cycle of a career is lacking. The concept of employability came into use in the 1950s (Versloot, Glaude, & Thijssen, 1998). However, it is only since the late 1990s that employability has been studied empirically (cf. Fugate, Kinicki, & Ashforth, 2004; Rothwell & Arnold, 2007; Van der Heijde & Van der Heijden, 2006). In the present study, an attempt is made to address the gap by examining current employability management practices in information and communication technology (ICT) small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across European countries.
