(Re)presentations of ‘Home’ and ‘Work’ in Organisational Life
So far in this book we have concentrated on individuals’ experience of organisational change and the factors shaping their careers. In Chapter 5 we saw how, for women especially, careers cannot be separated from other life events and responsibilities, in particular becoming a mother. In this chapter we continue to widen our focus by considering more fully individuals’ experience of the interplay between life at work, inside their organisations, and life outside work. Of course, and as we will show, these accounts shed further light on processes of organisational change, on career processes and on the gendered dynamics of both.
