Sullivan University is currently seeking to interview participants for an Institutional Review Board (IRB) - approved research project designed to learn more about the specific role played by HR practitioners in handling toxic emotions at work (e.g. employee emotions due to downsizings, mergers and acquisitions, terminations, reorganizations, etc.). The study will also examine the impact that dealing with these potent emotions has both on practitioners and their organizations.
If you have five (5) or more years of relevant HR-related work experience and 30-45 minutes to participate in an interview for this study, please contact me, Teresa Daniel, at firstname.lastname@example.org. As a scholar-practitioner, my goal (always) is to conduct research and write articles that are of direct benefit to HR practitioners. The results of this study should positively impact the world of work for our profession by identifying ways to minimize the often harmful effects to members of our profession due to HR professionals being "front and center" in many difficult organizational decisions.
