Letter of Solicitation for Research Study Participants

Dear Prospective Participant,
I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Phoenix in the College of Doctoral Studies in the Industrial/Organizational Psychology Program.  I am seeking participants for a study to identify consensus of experts on forward-looking strategies for modifying performance appraisals for aging employees.  To serve on the panel, one should have either 5-10 years’ experience in conducting employee appraisals or be an employee nearing retirement age (55+), or a member of management.  The surveys will take place online via SurveyMonkey. 

Participation will involve completing 3-4 separate surveys over about 4 months; total involvement is about 2 hours.  The first questionnaire should take 45-60 minutes.  The subsequent two rounds should take 20-30 minutes each to complete.  If a fourth round is necessary, it should take 20 minutes.

You can access more information about the study and the first survey at  If you have any questions, please contact me.  Kenneth Jenkins either by email at or by telephone at 804-896-2162.
