We are continuously engaged in a multi-pronged research program in order to advance the science of distributed work and enhance the predictive power of our assessments, thereby augmenting the impact of our consulting services. See below for our focal areas of research and our productivity in the peer-reviewed world of psychological and organizational science.
Personality and Distributed Worker Effectiveness
The following papers consider various topics including engagement, performance, satisfaction, and cyberslacking in distributed work environments. Note that our position on cyberslacking is that we don’t believe it is an obstacle to the implementation of distributed work; rather, we believe that knowing about one’s propensity for cyberslacking and installing the strategies and tools to effectively self-manage is most important.
