Data collection in the workplace setting poses unique challenges. In this case study, WFHN researchers share the methods used in the successful implementation of a longitudinal survey in a workplace setting.
A new WFHN study published in the Journal of Marriage and Family indicates that having a supportive supervisor can lessen the psychological and physical symptoms of stress that have been shown to result from work-to-family conflict (stress that can result when the demands from work interfere with family responsibilities).
Leslie Hammer, along with about a dozen of her fellow WFHN researchers, have published a paper in the Journal of Applied Psychology that examines the impact of a workplace intervention on employee reports of safety compliance and organizational citizenship behaviors in 30 health care facilities.
The study, Effects of a Workplace Intervention on Parent–Child Relationships published in Journal of Child and Family Studies by Work, Family & Health Network researchers, evaluates the impact on parent-adolescent relationships of a workplace intervention aimed at boosting employees' schedule control and supervisor support for personal and family life.
