Dear Research Participant,

My name is Amy Bradley, and I am a postgraduate research student with TÚS-Midlands, Midwest (Formally LIT). The title of my research topic is Consciously Unconscious: A Study of Unconscious Bias and its Implications for the Field of Social Care in Ireland. Unconscious bias refers to learned assumptions, beliefs, and/or attitudes that exist subconsciously within us. They are something we all have and can have substantial influence on our day-to-day decision making and social interactions without our knowledge.

Organisational Culture and Turnover Intentions Questionnaire

The aims and objectives are centred on answering the research question: Assessing the symbiotic relationship between organisational culture, leadership, and labour turnover by comparing the two sectors of hospitality and social care. It is anticipated that the research outcomes will benefit relevant stakeholders by extending knowledge in this important field of study thus enabling organisations to make necessary changes to alleviate costs related to high levels of turnover and create positive cultures in their organisations. If you have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate in contacting me via the following email: bekithemba.lunga@lit.ie.

Are you currently working in social care? 

This research project seeks to explore risk and resilience in social care workers. The researchers are looking for participants to complete a short survey on social care workers’ exposure to adverse events in their personal lives and the protective factors which may have helped.

Please note that some of the questions relate to difficult experiences you may have had as a child.

This project is a collaboration between Applied Psychology, UCC and Humanities, TU Dublin, and would greatly appreciate it if you could take a few minutes of your time to Compete the Survey


This survey takes 5-10 minutes to complete.
