Professional Life towards Family Life in the Context of COVID-19: Application in Mining Companies in the Former Katanga

Sylvain Mangala Manda


Abstract: Reconciling professional and family life is a question that challenges all managers in organizations. Taking it into account in management practices becomes crucial for the human resources manager. In the companies where this research was carried out, this question is almost absent in the documents because the establishments of these were carried out hundreds of kilometers from the large urban centers where the majority of qualified employees live with their employeesfamilies. Condemned to go back and forth after a week, ten days, a month depending on the case; there is an imbalance between the work and family spheres. The COVID-19 context has further reinforced this phenomenon as these mining companies in the former Katanga have mostly confined their agents to work sites for months. This practice, which can be seen as managerial resilience in a particular health context, was not without consequence: if companies continued to produce, it was to the detriment of the family concerns of the agents.
