Abstract

This chapter discusses i-deals within the broader context of changes in society and organizations. Greater focus in contemporary organizations and society is now put on the individual needs and wishes of employees, whilst at the same time employees are expected to be more self-reliant in their work and careers. The ultimate consequence of this process of individualization of work is the disappearance of the meaning of collectivity in the workplace. At the same time, employees who are not proactive enough to negotiate their own benefits, face the risk of losing the competition and are left with marginalized jobs or no jobs at all.
