Gift and gratuity:keys to build a new economy

Interview with Anouk Grevin, lecturer of the Eoc Summer School Madrid 2013

by Ana Moreno Marín

anouk grevinAnouk Grevin is a professor at the Nantes Polytechnic University. She invites us for a 360° turn looking for treasures. She will enlighten us to management studies on sociological and economical concepts of gift and gratuity. Her special interest focused on understanding new managerial approches and their impacts on workers’ well-being.

Anouk, you study gift dynamics. What is it?

I am convinced that gift is continuously present in our lives, also in the economic world and in the day to day working of a business. Think about the way you work: you are not only executing a task as a machine, but you constantly give from yourself, you give intelligence, efforts, willingness to cooperate with others, all things that can only be freely offered. Without that, you could not do a good job.
