English abstract
Managing work and non-work is central for individuals’ well-being however to different extents and to different manners for diverse individuals. For organisations, managing work and non-work becomes central to the development of healthy organisations especially one considering individuals in the centre. To truly be a healthy but above all a sustainable and healthy organisation, it is essential to listen to every employees. It is thus central to understand individuals as unique "human resource" and therefor to understand human resources in their diversity. Diversity can be discussed in diverse terms among those cultural or biological. The diversity in focus in this paper is sexual orientation in terms of "homosexuality" especially "gay homosexuality". The aim of this paper is to problematise and potentially hypothesise gay work/non-work experiences to set a research agenda. This dicussion is based on the accumulation of knowledge in the work/non-work life and the observation that the gay perspective in work-life tended to be forgotten whereas the society seems to give a place to these issues as the legalisation of the gay marriage is on the political agenda in serveral countries including the US, France and the UK recently. This discussion explores the extent to which the work/non-work experiences could be different just due to one’s sexual preferences of beeing gay.
