La fonction RH dans les associations : les valeurs militantes à l’épreuve de la professionnalisation

Abstract : In France today, there are 1.1 million nonprofits employing 1.9 million full- and part-time workers. Using data from 140 nonprofit organizations, this article examines how HR management is formed in this context, taking into account the kinds of organizations and values found in the voluntary sector. Even though the introduction of formal HR practices remains partly tied to the number of employees, the findings show that it also comes from the organization’s strategic choices. The recruitment of a managing director by the board appears as the main trigger for a process of professionalization that leads to hiring an HR manager. More effective and consequently more in line with the expectations of government and funding partners, these new HR practices are however accompanied by a decline in activism and community values.
