Generation C, also known as generation Z, is a term used to designate people born between 1987 and 1994. This study aims to answer the following question: Is it generation C merely a subgroup of generation Y, or is it a separate group? The perspective of this study is focusing on the codes, the moral values, the attitudes, and the representation towards work and management of generation C. After a brief review of the concept of generation and an overview of the scientific literature on the topic of the baby boom generation, generation X, Y, and C, the results of the empiric study will be presented. This study is based on one hand on interviews and focus groups, which allowed us to question 100 people, as well as, on the other hand on a survey answered by 400 individuals. The conclusion is that there is a moderate influence of generations on the relationship of work and management. Generation C is characterized by a heightening of the traits of generation Y. It does distinguish itself on a qualitative manner on several aspects, such as its relationship towards technology, on the management follow up, and on the perception if the company's boundaries.

Il existe de nombreuses études analysant l’impact de la diversité culturelle sur les relations et le travail au sein des équipes. Il existe cependant peu de travaux sur l’impact de la diversité culturelle sur les équipes virtuelles. Cet article vise à explorer ce sujet et à poser cette problématique, nouvelle dans le champ des études sur la diversité. Notre investigation cherche à étudier l’influence de la culture sur la manière d’utiliser les TIC dans la collaboration au sein d’une équipe. Nous partions de l’hypothèse que certaines stratégies d’utilisation des TIC peuvent être efficaces dans une culture et non dans une autre. Afin d’étudier cette problématique, nous avons choisi d’opter pour une méthodologie mixte croisant des données qualitatives (issues d’observations et d’entretiens) et quantitatives (issues de questionnaires et d’analyses de contenu de mails). Nous avons ainsi pu déceler des préférences d’utilisation des TIC, induites par la culture, ainsi que facteurs de complexification dans la coopération provoqués par la confrontation de ces préférences.

Since the end of the eighties, the globalization and development of new information and communication technologies have played a great part in complicating exchanges between companies and their various stakeholders (staff, customers/users and business partners). New forms of organization of work result in more and more relationships between people of different nationalities and cultures. Thanks to virtuality, a lot of companies can develop connections with people from various cultural backgrounds which can be co-located or distributed (with partners situated abroad, including in different time zones). But to maximize this potential, organization must overcome different complexifications levels of virtual communication and multicultural. So, we suggest studying the impact of cultural diversity on the quality and efficiency of virtual communications. There are already many studies about the impact of diversity on non-virtual context but very little about the impact of diversity on virtual exchanges. The originality of this article is to focus on the influence of intercultural and virtuality. [less ▲]

Within the framework of policies to promote the diversity, the use of quota is more and more discussed, what besides brings to the foreground tensions about this issue. There is no uniform model about that in the European countries. This article realizes an inventory of fixtures, in Belgium and in France, on the laws concerning the usage of the quota and the arguments (positive and negatives) in this issue. This research participates to show that the development of the quote in Europe joins in the passage of a regulation " soft law " towards one " hard law ". [less ▲]

Since the seventies, the modern organizations are regularly confronted with management of change policies. These have become more pronounced since the 2008 crisis. Nevertheless, numerous studies show a high failure rate of the downsizing, ranging form 53 % to 80 % (according to the objective and the country). In spite of this report, there are not a lot of studies about this phenomenon and even less in Belgium. So, this research aims towards a better understanding of the downsizing’s vicious circles. With this intent, we studied through a qualitative and systemic approach, a downsizing to reveal a series of potential hidden costs. So, we were able to discover dysfunction mechanisms located in the chinks of the zones of uncertainty engendered by the rationalization accentuation of the process and the HRM. It can potentially provoke risks of degradation of the social climate, the loss of the company’s adaptability to its environment, more frequent blockages of the production process, constitution of clandestine stocks, etc. These are the downsizings hidden costs.

It is the study, through interviews, participating observation and documentary investigation, of the resources which the unemployed persons have alongside those that they create and those, already existing, that they mobilize. The notion of resource exceeds the purely material frame to include also social, cultural, political and organizational resources. To do this, we have to investigate both the isolated unemployed persons and activist collectives (F.G.T.B., C.S.C ., "Chômeur actif", "Chômeur pas chien !" et "Stop chasse aux chômeurs"). We discovered that the difficulties connected to the way of life of unemployed persons (feeling of uselessness, financial difficulties, boredom, social isolation, etc.) generate, according to the individuals social contexts and trajectories of life, either a brake or fuel towards the constitution of a protest movement. Our study, also shows, by the comparison of independent collectives and trade unions, that without support and relays with the workers, the unemployed persons collectives and associations are compromised.
