Employment survey


Published on 13 August 2018 10:00 AM

Are you over 65 and working?
How do you craft your job to support your well-being?

Message from Department of Psychology, Nottingham Trent University:

We are looking for individuals who are post retirement age and working (either paid or voluntary) to take part in a study. The aim of the study is to understand how people adjust their work in order to maintain their well-being and performance.  

Help us to understand how we adjust to and make the most of work after retirement age

How does it work?

You can either ‘do-it-yourself’ or take part over the phone where we ask you about your daily job crafting. The study will involve:  
•    Completing ten short diaries on the way you carry out your work
•    Actively crafting your job for a further ten work sessions

For taking part you will get £50 worth of vouchers for a charity of your choice and a personal £20 Love2shop voucher.
