Dr Stacey L Parker
I research, teach, and consult on work and organisational topics.
I'm an academic in the area of Industrial & Organisational Psychology. I aim to help organisations and their employees devise new strategies to work healthier while still being productive. I have expertise in the conduct of field research in a range of high-performance settings (e.g., small business owners, professional musicians, elite athletes, and safety critical work in healthcare and transport industries). I also supplement my field research with a program of experimental research using work simulations.
Current research topics include: how workers manage their energy during the work day; how workers recover from work stress in off-the-job time; how jobs and careers can be designed to maximize well-being, motivation, and performance; and I also explore the 'hidden costs' of performance-based pay and compensation systems.
My consulting and advisory work has included helping organisations to tackle issues with selection and recruitment, training and development, career management, work design, and operational safety.
