    [eng] As one studies the various evolutions of manpower through time, it is very easy to take into account only one temporal evolution: the variation the economic situation. This paper presents other important evolutions which depend on different kind temporal scales. First of all we speak of the transformation of law, inducing sudden shifts for both employers and employees. Secondly we produce evidences of the importance of the long-term demographic transformations. And finally we give some exemples of middle-term sociocognitive evolutions. All those transformations are not easily linked to each other, thus we may ask questions to the flexibility approaches who suppose that all of them should follow the quickly changing economic situation. [fre] On rend compte trop facilement des évolutions de la main-d'œuvre en n'ayant en tête que la seule temporalité de la conjoncture économique. Cet article vise à mettre en le rôle crucial d'autres temporalités qui ne sont nullement synchrones les unes avec les autres : la temporalité juridique qui vient brusquement modifier les règles du jeu, la temporalité démographique qui agit sur le terme, et la temporalité socio-cognitive qui relève du moyen terme. L'articulation problématique entre ces différentes temporalités vient interroger la notion de flexibilité qui suppose que la conjoncture devrait donner le ton aux autres dynamiques temporelles.
