Beskrivelse: 

The objective of the ‘Kroonplan’ (or crown plan) is to involve employers and employees in small and medium-sized enterprises in making the working phase leading up to (pre)retirement as enjoyable and productive as possible. The route map requires active reflection on the part of the employee, enabling him or her to review his or her contributions to the company. This tool does not have an age limit; as well as being used in relation to older workers, it can be used to help prevent employees getting stuck in a particular role.

The objective of the ‘Kroonplan’ (or crown plan) is to encourage employees in small and medium-sized enterprises to treat their ‘third’ (or subsequent) life phase in a positive way. The plan involves employers and employees and aims to make the working phase leading up to (pre)retirement as enjoyable and productive as possible.

The route map requires active reflection on the part of the employee, enabling him or her to review his or her contributions to the company. However, the approach should not be used solely in relation to older employees or by applying an age limit (e.g. 5 years before their planned retirement age). It can also be used to help prevent employees getting stuck in a particular job or role. The action plan consists of five steps:

  1. Mapping the current and future situation.
  2. Conclusions: what needs to be changed?
  3. Planning and preparation of dialogue.
  4. Dialogue and decisions.
  5. Development, execution and monitoring of the plan.

 

 

 

 

In the route map, employers and employees can work out how to reach agreements with one another by means of (one or more) ‘Kroon conversations’, which serve to ensure that the scheduled route will be followed. There is a version for employees and a version for employers.

The route map was created by StAZ as part of a toolkit on the topic of sustainable employment, which also looks at the issue of work–life balance. The route map has been published on the StAZ website and on the website of the ESF-Age Network.
