This event aims to broaden work-life researchers' methodological toolkits, both quantitative and qualitative, and provide practical methodological guidance and support from experts in the field.
Two renowned US scholars in work-life research, Prof Gary Powell (Emeritus of Management at the University of Connecticut in Storrs) and Prof Jeff Greenhaus (Professor Emeritus in the Department of Management at Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business), will present and discuss quantitative approaches to exploring the work-life interface using vignettes and the critical incident technique. In addition, they will be joined by two UK-based speakers, Prof Caroline Gatrell (Professor of Organization Studies and Associate Dean of Research at University of Liverpool Management School) who will talk about researching emotionally charged topics and the possibility of tears, and Dr. Laura Radcliffe (Doctor of Organizational Behaviour and Director of the Master of Research Programme at the University of Liverpool Management School) who will discuss the use of qualitative diary methods to capture daily work-life experiences. Each presentation will be accompanied by interactive Q&A sessions with the audience and the latter part of the event will consist of interactive roundtable discussions focused on methodological approaches in work-life research, including providing attendees with support and guidance with regards to their own research designs. Opportunities for informal discussions and networking are also an important part of the agenda and provided throughout the day.
The same event is being held on two days, one in the North (Liverpool) and one on the South (London), with the aim of maximum reach and minimizing travel costs for attendees so that more people are able to attend. Participants are expected to attend the event on one of the days only.
