Workability: The Path to Entrepreneurship
Keywords:Workability, Entrepreneurship, Employability, Motivation, Review
AbstractSince the late twentieth century, it has been seen that the progress of information technology is changing everyday business. Advents such as telecommunications, for example, are increasing the speed of work, facilitating communication between people and changing to the way of doing business. From the moment at which transform organizational processes, information technologies also bring changes to the dynamics of the work. Thus, both the job security as employability, which is a job for life, are concepts that are becoming distant from everyday human. Emerge a new concept, the workability, which involves the individual's ability to generate income without necessarily having an employment relationship. In this sense, the worker becomes a production unit itself, from the administration of their own abilities and skills, acting as an entrepreneur. Given this, the purpose of this article is to show that the concepts of workability and entrepreneurship go together, and this concept dependent on that. The construction of this article was carried out bibliographic research with the issues involved. This study is structured as follows: in the first part, is carried out a review of existing changes in the current world and the implications for entrepreneurship. Then the concepts of entrepreneurship, workability and employability are explained. Then the methodology is presented, followed by the results and discussion. Finally, this study is closed through the final considerations.
