From the Editor-in-Chief's Desk: The Value of Reflexivity

The author discusses the value of critical reflection and critical reflexivity through enhanced understanding of employee and employer rights and responsibilities. He offers comparison between reflection and reflexivity wherein the former is a modernist process of ordering and simplification while the latter is about complexifying thinking to deliberately expose contradictions. He suggests organizational workers to engage in reflexive dialogues when facing challenges in the organization.
