INTERGENERATIONAL COWORKER RESEARCH
We are reaching out for assistance with important research on older workers conducted by Birkbeck Organizational Psychologists.
WHAT IS THE RESEARCH?
Funded by the British Academy, this research examines how older and younger colleagues interact at work. To do this, we need pairs of co-workers who know each other and work together in the same organisation. Each pair will consist of one older (50 years or older) and one younger co-worker (35 years or younger).
WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?
In addition to contributing to world-leading research, you will receive up to £15 in exchange for your participation.
WHAT DOES PARTICIPATION INVOLVE?
Answer 3 short confidential online questionnaires (max. 10 minutes), over a 3-week period. Questions ask about your contact and cooperation experiences with an older [or younger] coworker. Also, you we’ll ask you to nominate an older [or younger] to take part. We will invite them to answer the 3 questionnaires and they too will receive £15 in exchange for their participation.
WHY ARE YOU APPROACHING ME?
We are inviting members or employees of Gransnet that are under 35 years old or over 50 years old and work a minimum of 20 hours per week.
