Urgently Seeking Mid-size to Large Company as Doctoral Research Site
Due to a restructuring resulting in my leaving my previous employer, I am seeking a new business research partner for my Doctoral Study Project.
We know that stress, burn-out and turnover are costing American companies alone hundreds of billions of dollars a year in lost productivity. I'd like to understand how we can try to address some of this.
I am researching the impact of gratitude on organizational performance indicators, specifically employee job satisfaction and performance.
I am seeking a company large enough to source at least 45 volunteers (and their supervisors) for a research project that will take approximately six weeks to complete, with onboarding, the actual research phase, and off-boarding of participants. Total time commitment over the whole span of the project for each participant is estimated to be less than six hours (estimated ~20 minutes per day, 5x per week, for most participants).
I'm happy to share more information about my proposed study design with interested parties. I need to secure a new partner ASAP so I can continue with my dissertation proposal, but the actual "active phase" of this project will not happen probably until mid 1Q2021 or early 2Q2021.
Please feel free to share this information with anyone who you think might be interested. There's no compensation for this project, but there will be a full report provided to the participating organization which can help better outline specific challenges facing your employees and a greater understanding of your "engagement landscape", with recommendations for possible next steps. :)
Please feel free to email me for more information, as well. [email protected]
