Early-career Raine Study researcher wins award at international conference

One of our early career researchers involved in the Raine Study, Anupama Bharadwaj, has won Best Scientific Poster alongside co-authors Patrick Dunlop, Sharon Parker and Leon Straker at the European Association for Work and Organizational Psychology (EAWOP) Congress.

Anu is a fourth year PhD student in Organisational Psychology and has been working on the Personality, Work and Wellbeing (PWWB) project with the Raine Study since 2015.

Anu’s valuable work with the Raine Study involved not only the research, but also participant engagement initiatives such as workshops and feedback reports.

Utilising data from the PWWB project, Anu is researching whether employees’ job design and personality influences employee unethical behaviour.

The poster that Anu presented at the EAWOP Congress in Turin examined and built upon the data she has collected through the PWWB project with the Raine Study. The data collected is representative of the two waves of surveys our participants were involved in during 2016 and 2018.

Key findings of the research poster indicate that employees in jobs with a high sense of meaning at time 1 (2016) were less likely to rationalise unethical behaviour two years later. These findings also took into account change in jobs over the two-year period as well as the employees’ attitudes towards unethical behaviour in 2016.

Congratulations to Anu on winning the award, especially as part of her very first International Conference.

Thanks to the commitment of our participants, The Raine Study, has been able to make life-changing discoveries across all areas of human health and wellbeing.
