Title :  Accompanying businesses through the applications of digits and law
Author(s) :  Jean Jacques, Pluchart
Abstract :  This paper highlights how accompanying innovative French businesses sometimes follows a collective learning process involving the partakers of its innovative ecosystem. This process requires to call for a network of actors, to convey the subject matters and activate the most suiting processes tailored to the different layers of the value chain and lifecycle phases of the supported business. Intervention research tests the efficiency of a structure federating support, encompassing qualified practitioners, researchers, from many a disciplinary field.

Title :  Unreasonable career change: the case of the equine industry
Author(s) :  Charlène, Lourd ; Xavier, Philippe
Abstract :  Passion is difficult to grasp and often synonymous of both pleasure and risk. But what about passion at work and in organizations? The concept of passion is of recent interest and still little explored by research and the question of its role in professional choices remains to be studied. This research proposes to analyze how the professional activity can make passion happen. We propose here to analyze passion at work and not for work. To do this, we chose to study the equine sector. Based on the qualitative analysis of semi-structured interviews of 19 candidates for career change, this research describes and analyzes the different dimensions of passion, and also attempts to understand professional choices that may sometimes seem unreasonable.

Title :  The imaginary: an illusion, leading to aggressiveness, or consistence generating creative social dynamics? The case of local councils and home care associations
Author(s) :  Carine, Chemin-Bouzir
Abstract :  The imaginary, in Castoriadis’ sense, can promote or block meaningful cooperation within an institution. The literature has studied these dynamics at the level of society as a whole and at that of small working groups. This article shows how secondary social institutions, intermediating between society and working groups, influence the imaginary handled. A local council handling a fixed imaginary meaning, that “everything is quantifiable,” imposed from outside, provokes aggressiveness from non-profit organisations. A local council that promotes a dynamic in which the imaginary and the rules are developed collectively provokes a healthy regulation of the affective commitment of employees in the field. The management of non-profit organisations seize on this dynamic through shared work objectives, and individuality finds its place in working collectives.

Title :  Defending new tools to socially criticize businesses
Author(s) :  Adélaïde, De Lastic
Abstract :  Since the beginning of the 21st century, companies have been evolving considerably. This evolution involves organizations, individuals who work in it and the socio-economic context in which it evolves. Currently, we don’t have satisfying categories to think the business reality. Schematically, there are two symmetrical ideologies about organizational analysis. One presents a Marxist vision of the company as big capital seeking to dominate the workers. Its pro-business counterpart gives the image of an entity promoting the employees’ happiness. In any case, the company has a role that is not its own and goes beyond its actual reach. Current forms of enterprise present definite improvements but they are also the theater of new forms of evil and the cause of serious societal dysfunctions. We need analysis and constructive criticism, capable of providing the basis for effective problem-solving. Between contemporary values and new forms of workplace discomfort, what could be the tools of a current business social criticism that allows a fairer analysis and aims to address the ills of contemporary work organizations?

Title :  Z generation and work design: a new challenge for HRM
Author(s) :  Michel, Dalmas
Abstract :  What is work design shared by the Z Gen? More specifically, how does Z Gen underscore good relations in the workplace? Finding an answer to this question requires identifying a scale measuring organizational behavior (O’ Reilly and Chatman, 1991). 276 young people born between 1995 and 1996 have answered a survey during April, 2017.This quantitative empirical study leads to an exploratory analysis using SPSS, standing for Component Principle Analysis allowed to identify three factors. For Gen Z, therefore, there would be a new conception of work based on the observance of equity at work and search for professionalism. Innovation and risk-taking remain essential for success.

Title :  Developing an inventory of meta-individual values
Author(s) :  David Christophe, Moriez ; François, Grima
Abstract :  In a context marked by a greater reflexivity of work, the alignment of individual and organizational values is a fundamental issue for the management of human resources. However, the very definition of the concept of “value” varies greatly from one author to another, and numerous instruments have been created to measure values. The purpose of this work is to clarify the “value” concept and to produce an inventory of individual values that reduces the reliability, efficiency and control biases generally observed in the different scales. A four-step method for creating better conceptual definitions in the fields of organizational behavior and social sciences is used. The produced definition is then mobilized through seven rigorously detailed steps to offer a new inventory of 63 individual meta-values divided into 8 categories: the inventory of individual meta-values (IMVI).

Title :  "Wherever I went, I was not good.” History of a youth from child protection program to homelessness, outside of the organizations.
Author(s) :  Julien, Billion
Abstract :  This research is original given the nature of its subject – homelessness in youths; its theoretical framework - sociology of ruptures; its methodology field - street ethnography, recorded interviews, contact maintained over a period of 4 years, use of Facebook. Stéphane is one of the most excluded homeless youth. For a long period of time, he has lived outside of the organizations, in the street, even if on the sidelines he was hosted by an association, partners, or friends. He repeats the painful story of his childhood. He weaves, detains destructive, distended, unsatisfactory, pathogenic, fragile, violent and chaotic links with his nuclear family. He reproduces these links with other authorities and adults encountered in his existence: extended family, friends, partners, teachers, social workers, employers, organizations. His social trajectory is marked by suffering, violence, loneliness, vulnerability, narcissistic injuries, stigmas, exclusions, failures, resulting in the accumulation of ruptures with the organizations.
