New research at the University of Adelaide will investigate people's difficulties returning to the workforce after bullying, s-xual harassment or discrimination at work.
Academics are seeking Australian victims of workplace bullying and harassment, who have not yet returned to work, to share their experiences in order to help others.
The information gained in focus group sessions will be used to design a program to help bullied and harassed workers succesfully return to employment.
People interested in taking part in the study should contact Dr Moira Jenkins by calling 0412 733 453 or emailing moira.jenkins(at)aboto.com.au
Summary aim : This study will contribute to a better understanding of the embodied and affective nature of ethics in organisations.
Through an examination of the subjective experience of individuals involved in ethical challenges in organisations, the study will explore the affect/emotional experience of ethical dilemas and the ways in which ethics is directly experienced and enacted in organisational life.
In exploring the affective-emotional contexts in which individuals navigate ethical challenges, the impact of ethical challeges and the ways in which they are managed and responded to by organisations will also be examined.
These contexts include the formal processes of reporting, compliance and ethics management such as ethics statements and codes of conduct, along with the influence of organisational culture, leadership and the 'feeling rules' that circulate in organisations and how these formations of affect-emotion impinge upon, influence and colour contexts in which ethical situations are experienced including decisions leading to ethical action / inaction.
