Personal organization at work

848 vues

Are we just rational beings when at work? Over the last years, especially with the development of mobile technologies, work seems to be there at all time, in all locations, leading both companies and employees to reflect on work-life balance.
These trends have been fully explored but what about the other side of the story? Is there something else than work at work? Are employees trying to find a new equilibrium by inviting their personal life during their working hours?
This research project aims at studying people’s relationship with their everyday life at work and to analyze how personal organization can constitute a meaningful resource to maintain some balance.

What are the impacts of digital transformations on the HR function? Has digitalization changed the repartition of activities between HR professionals and the proximity managers? What types of HR missions/activities/tools will be digitalized in the future? To deepen these questions, an ambitious survey involving HR managers from BNP Paribas and Safran was launched, with a specific methodology (Delphi Method). In order to shape the future of the HR function more precisely, it is vital to better understand how HR professionals view themselves, their roles and their positions. This joint initiative of the chairs "Reinventing work" and "Une Usine pour le Futur" aims at understanding the future of digitalization for HR and HR managers today, but also tomorrow.

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.

Teleworking is more and more common inside organizations but may still have negative impacts on the teleworker's performance perception. Indeed, to be or not seen during the working hours influences the reliability and the commitment associated with the worker. The question is then on how to limit telework's drawbacks, i.e. how to overcome the lack of face time associated with telecommuting? Different options are considered by companies including the use of telepresence robots, allowing the teleworkers to be visible in the office … while being physically absent! In this research project, the aim is to examine the usage of telepresence robot technology and its impact on the worker perception.

The world of work is changing. The employment contract which determined to a large extent the employment relationship between employees and employers is no longer the only go-to way to organise work. Alternative work arrangements are on the rise. In the US, 0.5% of the entire workforce in 2015 was already involved in crowd work through platforms (Katz and Krueger, 2019) while crowd work represents the main job for 2% of the entire workforce in 14 countries in Europe (Pesole et al., 2018). Yet, the vast majority of management theories are based on notions of traditional, 9 to 5, employment relationships (Cappeli and Keller, 2013). Such a disconnection with empirical realities risks management and organisation studies unconsciously ignoring new issues. We seek to assess and update the psychological contract, a major management theory, to understand alternative work arrangements.
