Minutes for August 22, 2006 meeting was approved.
- Meetings changed to first Tuesday of each month at 3:30 instead of every two weeks.
- Demographic Report/Analysis – Jana Estergard.
- Made progress, have the data, but need to talk to Mary Routh to see about cleaning up the data.
- Faculty Morale Survey report – Dr. Michelle Visio
- Presented copy of faculty morale survey. Faculty will be surveyed again in next week. Noticed that the survey doesn’t ask about work/life satisfaction. Our survey should be more demographic.
- Dr. Scroggins suggested using focus groups instead of a survey. Focus groups are composed of members who have similar interests.
Literature Review – Dr. Michelle Visio & Dr. Wes Scroggins
- Reviewed two journal articles:
- Byron, K. (2005). A meta-analytic review of work-family conflict and its antecedents. Journal of Vocational Behavior, 67, 169-198.
- Allen, T., Herst, D., Bruck, C., & Sutton, M. (2000). Consequences associated with work-to-family conflict: A review and agenda for future research. Journal of Organizational Health Psychology, 5, 278-308.
- Work interferes with family life more than family life interferes with work.
- Didn’t find studies related to work/life issues and job performance.
- Draft memo to Dr. Nietzel asking for clarification of the committee’s mission.
- Think about focus group and logistics
- How many groups
- Make up of each group
- Use GAs as facilitators?
- What variables are important? (age, sex, type of job, mixed groups)
- Should there be a “test” group?
- Should generic outcomes be determined before or after the focus groups?
