Quick Reference

Where there is an interlinking of work and non-work social activities, an occupational community can develop. Typically, it means that workers socialize more with people of their own occupation in non-work hours than they do with members of other occupations. In many instances, this is emphasized by geographical location; for example, where a community has a dominant employer such as a steel works, factory, call centre, or retail outlet. Importantly, however, the term implies there are shared values and beliefs that are perpetuated outside the workplace.
