One essential value at the heart of our work, one of our main objectives, is to help marginal employees gain more power and control over their subjective experience.

 

This means helping marginal employees to critically question, interpret and reflect upon their positions and treatment within the occupational community. Marginal employees are those who sit at the periphery of an organisation’s dominant culture because they are different. Because of their differences, marginal employees typically experience injustice in various forms.

 

We write about areas of research interest which, we hope, will help marginal employees better manoeuvre in organisations through acquiring knowledge, skills and awareness of how agents of normative control operate at various levels of culture in an effort to control the subjective experience of marginal employees. We, therefore, act as a support network for marginal employees, helping to place their subjective experience into their hands.
