Does flexible working make you more committed?
Want to take part in some research to show whether flexible working changes employees' attitude to their employer?
Victoria Swensson, an organisational psychology masters student at the University of Manchester Business School, is conducting some research on how different working patterns, for example working part-time hours, working at home or working full-time hours, can influence employees' attitudes towards their organisation and their wellbeing.
She is looking in more detail at recent evidence which has suggested that individuals who have moved to a flexible-working arrangement, such as part-time work or working some/all of the week at home, are more committed to their organisation and may reciprocate by working harder and exerting more effort.
Victoria wants to recruit participants to fill in a short, confidential, anonymous online survey on their experiences and is particularly interested in people who have moved to a flexible-working arrangement, especially teleworkers/home-workers and part-time workers. The survey takes around 10 minutes to fill in and there is an opportunity to be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 Amazon shopping voucher for participating.
To access the survey, click here. It is open until the end of July. Any questions, email Victoria.Swensson@postgrad.mbs.ac.uk
