Biography

Dr Christine Grant, AFBPs, FHEA, is a Chartered and HCPC registered Occupational Psychologist, and member of the Psychology, Behaviour and Achievement Research Group at Coventry University, where she is also Associate Head of Post Graduate Academic studies. Her main research focus is exploring how remote e-working using technology impacts of work-life balance, job effectiveness and well-being and developing new psychometric measures. Christine is a lead researcher in the psychology of remote working and has published in this area, and been quoted recently in several media articles and radio shows including BBC news

She has also developed, through her PhD a new e-work-life scale that enables individuals and organisations to measure the impact and includes suggested strategies to ameliorate these issues, details can be found on her web site https://ework.coventry.ac.uk/.

Vision Statement

My research is inspired by the growing influence of technology on individuals lives and the blurring of boundaries between work and non-working life. I developed a new measure with associated interventions to help both individuals and organisations to be able to identify and ameliorate where problems arise. Lately my research has developed into looking at the ‘switched on culture’ and the impact that this may have across the life span of workers and how boundaries may continue to blur and integrate for both employers and employees. I also develop psychometric tests including employability and situational judgement tests for workplace issues. I hope to continue to research the impact of technology on different age groups and to combine this with the development of a competency framework for the resilient e-worker.
