Title Work/Non-Work Experiences In Organisation : A Narrative Perspective And Approach.
Author Languilaire, Jean-Charles Emile
Date 2013
English abstract
Attaining work-life balance is one of most important needs expressed by the 21st century global population in the western world. Such balance relies on boundary work and boundary management processes that when combine lead to individuals' work/non-work experiences. As experiences, this paper aims underlining and understanding how narratives participate to the work/non-work experiences. This paper reveals that six narratives are in fact present in individual's work/non-work experiences. It reveals that each of them is purposive. Together, narrative participate to diverse elements of the work/non-work experiences especially to boundary work, boundary management but also to the development of work/non-work self-identity or even to the development of the actual organisational formal and informal context. This paper thus suggests that further and deeper adopting a narrative perspective is needed to understand work/non-work experiences especially when combined with a "narrative approach" to access work/non-work experiences.
