From the Individual Occupation to the Firm Specific Occupation

“Individual” occupation, “collective” occupation, “firm specific occupation”: these notions use the same terms, but refer to three different realities: the individual work, the collective organisation and the firm’s strategy aiming at creating wealth. In the new organisations, these three notions, which used to be clearly distinct, tend to be interrelated and deeply affect the individual occupations. Several examples are analysed in this paper, in the insurance sector and in the recreational activities, which show the progress of the firm specific occupation within individual occupations.
