Working long and hard may simply do more harm than good

Nearly half of people in the EU work in their free time to meet work demands, and a third often or always work at high speed, according to recent estimates. In the Industrial and Labor Relations Review article she recently co-wrote with Hans TW Frankort, which has been downloaded approximately 3 500 times and quoted by the media around the world, Argyro Avgoustaki examines the effect of increased work effort and shows that it relates strongly to reduced well-being and modestly to inferior career-related outcomes, with discretion possibly attenuating these adverse effects.

Il semble que les vertus de l’éducation entrepreneuriale fassent l’unanimité... Mais qu’en est-il réellement ? Autrement dit quelles sont les représentations imaginaires collectives associées à l’éducation entrepreneuriale (EE) en France par ses différentes parties prenantes (enseignants, étudiants, chercheurs, entrepreneurs, accompagnateurs, responsables d’école ou d’UFR) ? Notre recherche en deux phases, l’une qualitative, l’autre quantitative, a permis de découvrir que cet imaginaire s’organise effectivement autour d’un noyau représentationnel de nature utopique.

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.

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.

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.
