Pas de résumé disponible.
This Ph. D examines the existence of professional mobility between companies in a group. Veolia Environment, which is our field of study, seeks to diversify routes of its 120 000 employees from 400 companies in its French perimeter, owned on a dozen distinct business market. Also, we have tried to understand what motivated a policy of diversification of professional career, to observe the effects and to explain the causes. The definition of professional mobility began by emphasizing the issues of recognition of qualifications and experience on the labour market. In this regard, the observation of historical series first shows that professional transitions remain, essentially, organized by Internal Markets, Professional Market and Occasional Market. We hoped to discover innovative mobility routes within Local-Global Firms that combine diversity of local companies and a global governance. The case of Veolia Environnement, however, reveals that coexists Internal Markets, Professional and Occasional Markets, partitioned between them in this group. It appears that the institutionalized segments of labour market increase the cost of news professional routes. In addition, we show that the lack of diversification of career paths is not limited to a rise in transaction costs. The interviews we conducted also emphasize that the employee are projected by the collective representations of their professional group of belonging.
