Abstract (EN)Drawing on the emerging identity work literature, this article adopts a Foucauldian perspective to further investigate how individuals deal with their moral agency in practice. To this end, we conduct an empirical case study linked to the introduction of a new management practice in a service firm. We identify four ways individuals as ethical subjects relate to such attempts to manage their subjectivity. By further exploring how individuals enact new management practices as ethical dilemmas, our aim is to contribute to rehabilitating the figure of employees as reflexive and agential actors.
