Workplace flexibility has grown increasingly popular for years and even more so since the outbreak of the pandemic. However, research results regarding the influence of flexible working on employee well-being are inconclusive. This is partly due to studies overlooking that flexible working is embedded in the way work is conducted and that it is ambivalent. Indeed, flexibility is sometimes experienced as a perk given by the organization, that may allow the employee to go to the doctor in the middle of the day. Other times it is experienced as a contribution the employee makes towards their organization, for example by working late to meet clients demands. Thus, individual experiences of flexibility may vary a lot. In any case, employees can have an active role in the construction and interpretation of flexibility. This project aims to investigate dynamic and idiosyncratic employee experiences of flexible working and how such experiences are connected to their well-being.
It seems that the virtues of entrepreneurial education are universally acknowledged... But what is it really like? In other words, what are the collective imaginary representations associated with entrepreneurship education (EE) in France by its various stakeholders (teachers, students, researchers, entrepreneurs, coaches, school or university managers)? Our two-phase research, one qualitative, the other quantitative, has shown that the social imaginary of EE revolves around a utopian representational core.
