Motivation in Alberta Oil Sands Work Camps Survey
- Posted on February 13, 2017
Richard Walmsley (Cessco) is conducting a survey for his Masters of Science application. The survey has to do with camp living and Richard has requested the help of anyone who lives or has lived in a work camp in Alberta by participating in his survey.
“I am undertaking a research project in partial fulfillment of a Master of Science program which will endeavor to link Alberta Oil Sands work camp living experiences and conditions to the general state of employee motivation.
By collecting and analyzing data from a broad spectrum of labour, trade and professional employees it is hoped that the results will provide valuable information as to the general state of employee motivation and how work camp living experiences can affect the motivation of the workforce with respect to actual job site productivity.
The survey question are intentionally broad with limited demographic data requests design to segregate responses from labour and trades persons from those of professional personnel, segregate single employees from those supporting families or other dependent from whom they are living away while in camp assignments and broadly explore possible cultural differences with respect to individual satisfaction with the overall camp living experience.
The survey audience is essentially anyone who lives or has lived in a work camp in Alberta and will remain open until mid-April for responses.
I thank all who participate in advance and remain open to questions at any time.”
