Improving Manager-Employee Relations

Researchers: 
Pritesh Patel, The University of Nottingham

Brief description: 
How would you describe your working relationship with your organisation? Similarly, how would you describe your relationship with your lead manager/supervisor? This relatively short study (approx. 10 minutes) seeks to understand employee perceptions of their relationship with their organisation and their manager. As we know, it is vital to have a strong understanding with your manager, which can be key to effective working and productivity and, ultimately, improve job happiness.

Exploring factors in the development of disordered eating.

Researchers: 
Alyx Hamilton Smith & Hanna Eilers, University of Edinburgh

Brief description: 
This study aims to examine the interaction between several variables (e.g. perfectionism,   protective and promotive factors, attachment, childhood trauma), and the extent to which these in turn play a role in the development of disordered eating. The assessment will consist of a series of online questionnaires (created through Bristol Online Surveys) that can be easily accessed through a link. If you agree to participate in this project you will be asked to complete an online survey in one sitting (approximately 25 minutes) and to answer all questions honestly. Your responses will be anonymous – we won’t ask you for anything personal like your name. If you wish to give us your email for the prize draw (one of two £15 Amazon vouchers or one £20 Amazon voucher) we will keep that separately from your answers and there will be no way to link the two together.
