ARE YOU CURIOUS ABOUT CREATIVITY IN THE WORKPLACE?
We have partnered with Drexel University (Philadelphia, PA) to conduct research to learn about how attitudes influence creativity.
We are looking for employees and their managers to complete separate surveys to speak to their experiences in the workplace. If you chose to participate and you AND your manager each complete surveys, you will be eligible for a raffle to win one of four $50 Amazon gift cards.
The survey should take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete online. After you complete your survey, a separate survey will automatically be sent to your manager using an email address you will provide. Your manager will NOT be able to see the results or responses of you or any individual participant. The survey should take your manager approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. Only trained research staff from Drexel University will have access to your information which will be kept on a password-protected, secured, and encrypted server, and destroyed once the data sources have been merged.
Participation in this research is completely voluntary. However, without your participation we will not be able to gain or learn new insights. Aggregated data will be used to publish research findings. Information will be presented in summary format and you will not be identified in any way in any publications or presentations. If you complete the survey, you will be agreeing to take part in the research study.
Please consider sharing this communication if you know other people who work for a corporation and may be interested in participating in this study.
After you complete the survey above, a separate survey will automatically be sent to your manager using the email you provide. Please note, your manager will NOT be able to see your survey responses or results.
If you have any questions about this research before making the decision whether to participate or not, please contact the study’s Principal Investigator (PI), Dr. Lauren D’Innocenzo, Ph.D. at firstname.lastname@example.org or Peter Gabriel at email@example.com.
