Researcher(s): Principal Investigator: Dr. Lieke ten Brummelhuis, Beedie School of Business, Simon Fraser University
Co-Investigator: Brad Huang, Sauder School of Business, University of British Columbia
Description: In this study, you will be asked to complete surveys that ask about your experiences and thoughts about your work and family life. You will be asked to first complete one survey that takes about 16 minutes to complete. You will then complete one 5-minute daily survey per day for one week (i.e., seven consecutive days), which requires you to record your hours spent on work, family, and other activities each day. Last, we will also send your partner one 5-minute survey regarding his or her experiences and thoughts about work and family life.
We believe this study will help you not only reflect on your current work and family life but also become cognizant of your values and attitudes toward work and life to increase self-awareness and motivation for better work and life experience.
