Les pratiques des managers de première ligne dans la fabrique des mobilités internes : entre bricolage et transgression des normes

Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is twofold. It first aims to enrich the understanding of practices considering how they are related to norms without restricting our view to a binary approach of opposition or not. It also intends to deepen the knowledge about first-line managers' practices in the internal mobility management process. While fundamental, these practices still remain poorly explored. Adopting a « HRM-in-practice » and an abductive perspective, this thesis relies on the study of a large public company that intends to give its managers a key role in internal mobility process. This study reveals a diversity of first-line managers' HR practices even though they are faced with the same top management's norms that severely restrict their formal leeway. By introducing the concepts of deviance and bricolage into the Practice Perspective's analysis framework, we show that this diversity conceals four different ways of behaving towards norms: in addition to opposition or not to norms, practices can also apply them with more or Jess distance. The distinction of these practices regarding the consideration of norms with or without deviance and bricolage first highlights the differentiation in used resources and action logics. These practices can also be considered as local adaptations to tensions related either to current norms or to the internal mobility management system. We finally show that the different practices that have been identified contribute to the construction of internal mobility in different ways.
