A contre-sens : lorsque les individus et les collectifs transgressent en vue de créer et maintenir du sens dans leur travail. : Une recherche-action en Centre d’Accueil de Demandeurs d’Asile

Abstract : Our research proposes to study how transgressive practices allow professionals in the Reception Center for Asylum Seekers to create and maintain meaning in their work. These actors are increasingly considered as agents of migration policies (Daadouch, 2017), which calls into question the meaning they give to their work and which seems to be found only at the cost of a certain disobedience. It is precisely this relationship that we are studying in this thesis. Meaning at work is a social construct that develops in the interaction between the individual and his work environment (Isaksen, 2000). However, it is possible for managers to create favorable conditions to the experience of meaningful work. (Frémeaux and Michelson, 2017). The objective of this construction of meaning, through the sensemaking (Weick, 1995), being organizational resilience, we believe that transgression, defined as a deviation from the norm based on the interaction between a person and situations (Pesqueux, 2010), can be a new source. To carry out this doctoral work, we decided to realize an action research (Pasmore et al., 2008). This work allows us to observe that asylum professionals experiencing loss of meaning are using transgressive practices, mostly collective, to remedy this. The transgression is thus understood as a means of adapting the rule in order to make real work more in line with the values of individuals and the collective. Our thesis thus makes it possible to enrich the literature on transgression by highlighting its collective dimension and its contribution as beliefs and actions during the sensemaking process. Beyond that, our doctoral work helps to shed light on a new field of study for Management Sciences and proposes a new category of direct participant observation.
