O'Mahoney, Joseph ORCID: 2007. Constructing habitus: the negotiation of moral encounters at Telekom. Work Employment & Society 21 (3) , pp. 479-496. 10.1177/0950017007080009

This article uses Bourdieu's concept of habitus and a relational view of agency to illuminate the role of the actor in negotiating moral norms in organizations. Drawing upon case-study evidence from a major start-up company, the article illustrates how power, time and agency intertwine in a series of 'moral encounters'. It is argued that the outcomes of these reflexive negotiations feed into the creation of dispositions which inform the creation and interpretation of subsequent action.
