This paper undertakes a comparative analysis of two “regained companies” (enterprises recovered and managed by their workers) from Argentina. Almost two decades since the beginning of the processes of restoring Argentine enterprises, it is important to analyse and characterize processes that have succeeded in stronger and relatively stable enterprises. Therefore, this paper focuses on the “consolidation” of the process, understood as a moment in which the production, employment and income became relatively regular; some practices and decisions became routine and institutionalized; and a particular course of the organization became predominant. These characteristics are indicators of these processes and companies, and to the institutionalization of new working arrangements.
