  1. UO professor seeking participants for workplace study


My name is Dr. Kate Zipay. I am an Assistant Professor here at the University of Oregon in the Lundquist College of Business. I study how employees’ lives outside of work influence how they feel, think, and act at work. I am conducting new research in partnership with Dr. Catherine Kleshinski and Dr. Kelly Schwind Wilson from Purdue University. In our study, we are examining leisure, well-being, and the workplace.

Below you will find a link to the first survey, hosted by Purdue’s licensed Qualtrics survey software. If you choose to participate, you will be asked to:
1.    Complete three 15-minute surveys over the course of several months.
2.    Provide the email address of your partner/spouse and email address of a coworker. They will each be asked to complete one 15-minute survey that we will email to them directly.

You are eligible to participate if you:
1.    Work at least 30 hours per week on average.
2.    Have a partner/spouse who also works at least 30 hours per week on average and would be willing to participate.
3.    Have a coworker who you interact with regularly who would be willing to participate.
