In an effort to respond to these challenging times, Professor Sharon Parker and the team at the Centre for Transformative Work Design, Future of Work Institute, Curtin University, Western Australia, have launched a critical Thrive at Work at Home survey study to investigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on work and well-being.

We would welcome your participation and are keen to hear from you if you are working from home at least part of the time, or are likely to be working from home soon. Participation involves 4 weekly 30 minute surveys followed by 5 monthly 30 minute surveys (6 months in total).

Using emotional intelligence to take care of yourself and others in a virtual world

For those of us fortunate to still have jobs in a COVID-19 world, I’m right alongside you, learning how to navigate a 100% remote role in a 100% virtual marketplace. Although we’re the lucky ones able to still perform our job during this unprecedented time…it doesn’t mean this #remotelife is easy. 

Fortunately, we also have resources we can use to buffer or counteract the demands being placed on us in our remote work-life. Job resources refer to any physical, psychological, social, or organizational aspects we can use to complete our work, achieve our goals, reduce the effect of remote work-life demands, and promote personal growth, learning, and development.

Three New Reads

Anonym 0 322 Article rating: No rating

Work may have changed, but it continues nonetheless. Three new white papers are now available to keep you up to date on the latest in I-O research.

The SIOP International Affairs Committee has produced the first paper, Be the Eyes: Training Employees to Recognize Industry-Relevant Indicators of Sex Trafficking. Authors Maura J. Mills, Leanne M. Tortez, and Robert Blanton discuss ways to teach employees how to identify critical signs of trafficking in their places of work. Despite advances in sexual harassment training, the training and resources for identifying and stopping sex trafficking have lagged behind. This white paper gives managers in the trucking, hospitality, convenience, and other industries a set of resources they can use to start the process.
