Shining a light on moonlighting: Investigating the psychosocial work environments of multiple job-holders
Psychosocial risk refers to the potential for harm that is created through the organisation and management of work, and the social context within which work occurs. My PhD will involve developing a means of assessing psychosocial risk in New Zealand workplaces. I am currently in the planning and literature review stage, and am seeking a strong theoretical angle from which to base my research. My PhD will have a practical focus, and it is hoped that one of its final outputs will include the adaptation of an instrument for measuring psychosocial risk, tested specifically for the New Zealand context.
I chose to return to postgraduate study after some time in the workforce, primarily working in the field of human resources. Massey was the ideal place for me to undertake a PhD as it enabled me to study under the guidance of the School of Management's Healthy Work Group. I am Assistant Lecturer, which means that I juggle completing my PhD with teaching duties. I relish the varied nature of my role and hope to continue working in academic long term.
