Many authors have emphasized the situated and distinctivecharacter of action. The work context is often described as a resource or a constraint for action. However, few studies have examined the contextual elements that serve as a resource or a constraint in any given group. We believe that the individual’s perception of the context needs to be taken into consideration when examining experience and work integration. In order to identify these contextual elements, we conducted semi-directive interviewswith 69 workers. Content analysis revealed that when most participants were asked about their job, they answered in terms of the context and used contextual elements to describe it.
