Research Assistant (master thesis)

THIS IS YOUR JOB

'HAPPY WHEN BUSY? JOIN US AND BE THE BEATING HEART OF OUR BUSINESS.'


As a Research Assistant you will have the opportunity to write your master thesis and at the same time gain experience in research outside of the university setting. You will be working in the field of People Analytics. People Analytics is a data-driven approach to study and understand the relationship between certain HR processes, employee well-being, and organizational outcomes. We collect data from questionnaires from workplaces all around the world. This is the data you will be using for your research.


You are going to be involved in addressing certain research requests coming from our clients. This is a fantastic first step to understanding how to fulfil research activities in a commercial setting. Exploring differences across organizational units, applying predictive analysis, and providing business insight will be among the main tasks you will be performing. In this role, you will be in contact with our internal workforce (such as consultants and project managers). But that’s not all! Your research input is also highly valued in our think tanks and product development sessions. Shortly, in this position, you will have the chance to have a glance of employee happiness research on a global scale among colleagues who are also happy and global.


We have some topics in mind for your master thesis, but we would like to decide this together with you.
