(p.187) Twelve From health to tourism: being mobile in the wellness sector in Hungary
Rethinking professional governance

Katalin Formadi

Policy Press

This chapter examines cross-mobility in the emerging field of employment in the health and wellness tourist sector in Hungary, thereby extending the notion of professional development to a sector currently outside the scope of public control. It explores the patterns of movement, the strategies of employees' mobility and career pathways in the health and wellness tourism (HWT) sector. It combines approaches from the sociology of professions and sociology of work with career studies, arguing that the professionalisation of an occupational field determines the career possibilities of employees. While the emerging HWT sector cannot provide well-defined organisational career pathways, it may offer employees more freedom in managing their careers and lives.

Keywords:   Hungary, health employment, health and wellness, professional development, professionalisation
