Career Ecosystem Theory: A foundation for sustainable careers

The presentation offers a novel theoretical lens – an ecosystem theory of careers – whereby new forms of institutional work arrangements emerge in response to changes in the environment.

Careers and career management have changed significantly in the past generation, and labour markets have become more dynamic, with an overriding demand for flexibility due to the needs and requirements of both organisations and individuals.

This means that the psychological contract, which is the bedrock of work relations, has changed too - the “new normal” is characterised by posts carrying varied obligations and expectations that come in varying work configurations.
