With help of the LWM companies are able to measure the competencies of an employee as well as the amount to which they fulfill their job requirements. This is mirrored by the so called wage value. In other words: Companies in the Netherlands can be sure that they pay for their staff members‘ actual skills. The concept of the LWM is based on 3 principles: 1. on the dialog between management and staff, which is supervised by a professional adviser, 2. on the focal point being the strengths instead of the weaknesses of the personnel and 3. on the workplace related adjustment of the individual competence development. From the organisation´s view former unemployed can be employed on a much more flexible basis, individually adjusted to the specific employability of the new employee. To ensure a successful innovation transfer, the LWM shall be adjusted to the cultural and judicial frames of the particular country.
