I’ve neglected this blog for over a month now, due to overwhelming pressures in the other spheres of my life. Work has been very busy (though not overly so) and I’ve been spending a lot more time on my Doctorate. For this of you who don’t know yet, I’m approximately half way through a doctoral course in Occupational Pychology, and my activity therein has seriously ramped up of late.
And so we come to the reason for this post…
For any blog readers out there who are interested, my online survey is up and running and can be access by clicking here. While you’re at it, please feel free to pass on the URL to any friends, family or colleagues you think might like to take part (http://tinyurl.com/6m8k7o).
I’m going to send a summary of my findings to interested participants later in 2009, but you’l need to indicate your email address at the end of the survey to receive the report.
Feel free to send me a message or email if you’d like to learn more about the project. In a nutshell, the WLB literature has largely ignored the experience of employees who a) don’t have children or b) are gay/lesbian. My project is seeking to redress this imbalance a little and find out what these employees think about WLB, how they manage their own balance, and how they differ (if at all) from their straight employees and those with children.
The survey is going to inform some qualitative research I’m going to undertake later in the year. The bottom line? Everyone is welcome to participate – the more the merrier.
And I thank you in advance for your time.
