Abstract:The goal of this research is to gain more insight in the factors that influence the degree of initiative taken by prolonged sick employees during the re-integration process. Possible determinants in this research can be divided in: employees’ characteristics, scope for autonomy and supporting facilities. In addition, it is examining the extent to which the degree of initiative advances the success of reintegration and whether customization of work is a mediating factor. Finally, it is examined whether the relationship between the degree of initiative and the success of re-integration is affected by the age of the long-term sick employee. The research concerns employers who, since 1 January 2005, have had one or more employees off sick for 13 weeks or more (N=613). The results are obtained on the basis of the opinion of the employer about the long term sick employee. From the analyses it shows that as the professional level from the long term sick employee increases, the degree of initiative increases as well. Psychological conditions lead to a lesser degree of initiative, as do bought-in services to support the process. From the results it can also be concluded that the scope for autonomy does not influence the degree of initiative. As hypothesized, the success of re-integration increases with a higher degree of initiative taken by the long-term sick employee. The probability of resuming work increases and the length of absence decreases. Customization of work only has a mediating effect on the relation between the degree of initiative taken and resuming work. In addition, it is clear that, as the age of the long-term employee sick increases, the positive effect between the degree of initiative and resuming work decreases. It also shows that the duration of absence increases with the age of the long term sick employee. Finally, age does not affect the probability of resuming work.
