Steve Barker of Tiddington, Oxford, urgently needs some help for his Doctoral research at Oxford Brookes University Business School into
the effect of involuntary redundancy on attitudes to work in future jobs.
To date, no one has looked into this, and the results could be very far reaching.
He’s had great help from Amicus the union and the results so far look very interesting. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
He tells me:
“I’m looking for people who have been made involuntarily redundant in the past but now have jobs. I need them to fill in a short online survey, and possibly volunteer to take part in an interview. As you can imagine, total anonymity will be guaranteed.
I have been advertising the research in various places using the wording below:
‘Oxford Brookes University researchers are conducting research into how the experience of involuntary redundancy may affect attitudes to work.
If you have been made involuntarily redundant in the past but are now in employment, you are invited to take part in this important research. This involves filling in an online survey form which should take 5 minutes to complete, and if you wish, volunteering to be interviewed.
Total confidentiality is guaranteed. For further details and the online survey please go to http://www.stephenbarker.co.uk or email Steve Barker at firstname.lastname@example.org.'”
I promised Steve that I would help publicise it as he’s really struggling to get sufficient participants to make the research meaningful.
Good luck Steve!
