I am looking for references regarding pragmatic views of philosophy of work and worklife.
That's pretty vague. Here are some discussions we've had on this SE. Are you asking for something not covered by these?
Buddhism has 'right livelihood', as one of the steps on the Eightfold Way, which together are the 4th Noble Truth. It's not really systematic, more a kind of guide to contemplating how to subsist ethically, and in alignment with Buddhist priorities.
Play is philosophically interesting, and how it can overlap or not with work. Nietzsche said: "Man's maturity: to have regained the seriousness that he had as a child at play." Feeling autonomous and able to be creative in a job has been shown to reduce stress & link to a longer life.
