Le pourboire : ce qu’en pensent les acteurs

Abstract : Tipping: what those giving and receiving a tip really think This articles studies the meaning of tipping, both for those who give and those who receive tips. A qualitative study of customers and staff in different service sectors uncovered 4 quite different interpretations of tipping. Each interpretation places tipping within a different dimension of the service relationship - the production of the service, the contract, the social relationship and the personal relationship - and constructs the tip either as com- pensation or as a gift. This in-depth study of tipping ends with managerial recommendations concerning tipping.
