My interview with Siobhain Scanlon – Musgrave Graduate Programme Officer

At a recent site visit at the Musgrave Distribution Centre in Kilcock, I learned that Musgrave is the largest private sector employer in Ireland.  Not only that, but they also have a fascinating graduate programme which considers applications from graduates of all disciplines, and many of these graduates remain with the organisation in management roles.

The deadline for applying for the programme is October 27th 2016, and I recently had the privilege to interview the Graduate Programme Officer, Siobhain Scanlon about the initiative.  The interview is now available on the Musgrave Graduate Programme YouTube site, so for some insight on how to prepare to apply, click here.

Work, ethics & occupational choice survey – Information Sheet.

Why is this research being conducted?  This survey is being conducted to determine if there are relationships between an individuals personal ethical position (whether they demonstrate ethical characteristics that align with the position of a subjectivist, a situationist, an absolutist or an exceptionalist), and the value they place on work choices (i.e their preference for a job, a career or a calling), and the extent to which they engage in vocational ideation or career planning. The study utilises a survey instrument developed by R.L Forsyth in 1980 to identify personal ethical positions, and a question from Wrezniewski et al. (1997) to determine work values.

Why am I being asked to take part?  Understanding one’s dominant personal ethical position or disposition is a crucial part of developing self-awareness which can impact on how students engage with the subject of business ethics.  In this research, an attempt is being made to test whether this position can influence other important areas of concern to students, such as occupational choice, and work ethics and values.

What will participation involve?  You will be asked to complete an online questionnaire which should take no more than 15 minutes to complete. No further studies are planned at present, but if you would like to indicate that you are willing to participate in future studies, it will be possible to provide an email address at the end of the study.

What will you ask me about? The first five questions will collect demographic information related to your current programme, your year of registration, age, gender and nationality.  Then you be asked to read three short pieces of text and identify which position you identify with most.  This is followed by three short questions about your current career or occupational planning activities.  Finally, you will be presented with 20 statements and asked to indicate your level of agreement with each of these.

What are the possible benefits of taking part in this research? This is an opportunity to participate in a research project and learn (from the inside) about how such studies are undertaken.  It also means that you will get a deeper appreciation for the research which informs portions of the business ethics modules in Maynooth University School of Business.

Do I have to take part?

Participation is entirely voluntary. You are under no obligation to take part.  If at any stage during the research you feel that you no longer wish to take part, that is completely fine and you are free to withdraw from the survey.

Is the study confidential? Yes.  The data will not be reported in a way that will make any individual or group visible or identifiable.

What will happen to the data?

All data collected will be treated in confidence and will be held anonymously and securely. Any potentially identifying details will be removed.  It is possible that some of the data from this research might be included in academic reports, articles or academic presentations.

As per Maynooth University’s Research Integrity policy ‘all primary data (anonymised where relevant and feasible) [will] be held for a minimum period of ten years following publication.’  This anonymised data will be stored on USB device in a locked cabinet to which only the researcher will have access.    The data will be encrypted and password protected. When this timeframe has elapsed the data on the USB will be overwritten.

It must be recognized that, in some circumstances, confidentiality of research data and records may be overridden by courts in the event of litigation or in the course of investigation by lawful authority. In such circumstances the University will take all reasonable steps within law to ensure that confidentiality is maintained to the greatest possible extent.
