PostRespondents needed for survey on work stress

by EmilyC » Fri Dec 07, 2012 11:26 am

Hi!

I'm a researcher at University College London (UCL) and I'm currently running a study looking at work stress and how people recover from work, with the hope to find out what factors and activities (for example, social support) may help with this. I'm really keen to get respondents from a variety of professions (in particular those that work outside of the 9-5, and/or in creative jobs), so it’d be great if anyone form this forum would be interested in taking part.

It only takes 15 minutes and you’ll receive instant feedback on things like whether you have high work strain, whether you’re successfully recovering from work and whether you’re work life is influencing your home life. Plus, you’ll be entered into a prize draw for one of six £50 Amazon vouchers and you’ll be doing your bit to help develop methods of improving post-work recovery!

The only requirement is that you work at least 3 days/shifts per week and are over 18. Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions or comments (my e-mail address is on the first page of the survey).

Here’s the link:

Thanks in advance for your help!

I was ticking along with it fine until I got to... would you trust someone online to lend you 500 pounds. Methinks this survey is not only about stress but also meets information requirements of other interested parties. Feel free to strongly disagree.

Sorry about that question, although it's honestly nothing underhand - it's just about how much social support you have, with the idea being that if you have someone that would lend you £500, they're probably a close/trusted friend. As people these days have online as well as offline friends, there are two sets of questions that ask the same thing but one set asks about people you know online and the other asking about people you know offline. Having a lot of social support is meant to dispel some of the negative outcomes of work stress, so I had to put something like that in there so I could control for it.

I hope that goes some way to explain it! Some of the questions can seem a bit odd out of context, but this is all in the name of science, honest!

Thanks to everyone who has taken part so far, it's all very much appreciated.

It's fine Helen. I've just completed it, and the question is completely in context with the overall study. No identifying information is required so you won't be tapped up for £500!!
