1. AREAS OF INTEREST AND EXPERTISE

Alina's research relates chiefly to labour market flexibility and workplace flexibility practices (WFPs).  The main focus of research is the British labour market, but other national and international avenues may also be explored.

This research evaluates the flexibilisation of working life, both when initiatives are intended to provide improved benefits for employees, and where the stimulus rather arises from the intention to promote more efficient working patterns, enhanced productivity and higher rates of economic expansion for the benefit of the business / employer.

At individual employee level, research outcomes advanced to improve the employee work situation may be expected to modify the “time squeeze” experienced by a growing number of professional and/or managerial employees, helping to support many employees with their work-life balance, being more productive and increasing their well-being, job satisfaction and general happiness.

At corporate level, superior business performance can lead to greater labour market flexibility through better matching of production / supply to fluctuating demand, promoting productivity through more efficient reorganisation of working conditions and facilitating macroeconomic sustainable development goals.

Flexible work is assessed in great detail, be it:

- numerical or temporal (part-time working; the gig economy; zero-hours contracts; flexitime),

- functional (training, job sharing; job autonomy);

- or cost flexibility (pay-related-to performance, merit pay, bonus pay).

In a more general view, Alina's research interests include all of the following: 

Labour Economics

  • flexible working practices
  • job satisfaction and employee well-being
  • worker, company and economy-wide performance such as related to high-performance work, absenteeism and redundancies
  • training and promotion linkages
  • labour market trends inclusive of social mobility, skills mismatch, inequalty
  • (im)migraton 

Management

  • business resilience and growth
    • the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic
    • the economic impact of Brexit
    • regional growth and development
    • the economic impact of the 2008 Global Financial Crisis
    • Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs); scale-ups; start-ups; high-growth firms
  • the European Union as an economic area and its role as part of the global economy
  • HRM practices and their impact on company and employee performance
  • historical and cross-country comparisons of development in management science and evolution of managerial techniques

Organisational Behaviour

  • cross-disciplinary insights derived from Sociology and Psychology e.g. the role of attitudinal variables in understanding organisational and worker behaviour
  • the impact of technology on organisational and societal evolution

3. RESEARCH PROJECTS

Alina has responded rapidly to providing analysis and data of crucial importance to business and policy makers, such as via (helping with the) initiaion, design and data analysis of timely research projects into the key events for the British labour market.

3. 1. A selection of Alina's key research projects include:

This is an invitation open to all UK businesses and employees to be part of the leading-edge research project "Knowledge is Power - Business and the New Unknown" helping with the COVID-19 pandemic at most uncertain times and informing policymakers about best decisions. A survey questionnaire is open for any UK employee or UK business, to assess the support needed to reach higher levels of job satisfaction, well-being and productivity.

How can this project make a difference to you? It will provide you and policy-makers timely, valuable, scientific information on vital business aspects to find out what works for business and employees, for whom and how to support you.

How is this research different than others? This is not just a one-time research project to write a report gathering dust; this is a scientific, in-depth and longer-term project for creating of value and meaning for business resilience, societal well-being and growth. Our research team is here for the long haul, collecting data from both business and employees, and we do this three times: (1) during the pandemic until 30 Jul 2020, (2) shortly after lockdown eases in autumn 2020 and (3) when things settle down hopefully to normal in early 2021. Only this long-term design, and a joint business-employee survey, can give employees, businesses and policymakers the best, most relevant and timely knowledge

Who is invited to take part? All UK employees and UK businesses are welcome to take part. Please feel free to share the two survey links (to our business and employee surveys) with UK employees (family/friends) and UK business.

What are you invited to do? Fill in the following on-line questionnaire, designed to take no longer than 15 minutes. Estimates is what we're after, no need to spend time typing exact figures.

All responses are kept strictly confidential, shall be stored in a GDPR compliant way, and shall be anonymised so that no employee or business can be identified in any reporting. If you have further questions or queries about this survey, please contact me, the team's research fellow via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (email monitored daily).

To take the employee survey, where you are invited to join in so that we can assess the impact of the pandemic on job satisfaction and well-being, new flexible ways of working and productivity, the link is:

while for the business survey please click on the link below, which we also encourage you to share with other businesses:

https://www.research.net/r/KnowledgeIsPower4Business 

All UK businesses and all UK employees are welcome to take part - please feel free to share the two links to our surveys as widely as possible.
