The main objective was to investigate motives underlying wasteful activity in the house, intended as an installation where physical, embodied and social factors interact with one another and shape individuals’ activity beyond intention.First, a background on household practices and a theoretical framework for analysing them was provided.Findings suggest that type of prosocial motivation affects the experience of reward and risk.
And whilst entering an organisation, a signed legal contract containing the details regarding the employment isn’t the only one that an individual signs. Though individuals may vary in their reactions to the breaking and making of psychological contracts, the ‘sense-making’ process is often a common theme amongst the youngsters as they attempt to adjust and adapt to these changes.
And thus, this study utilised the sense-making and social-exchange theory to map the process of adaption and modifications to this contract.
And one of the processes utilized to understand life events is ‘sense-making’.
Transitioning from being a student to an earning member of the society is one of the biggest changes/life-events that an individual experiences in the first quarter of their lives. Hence, to understand what the work-place is like for graduate newcomers and what happens to their expectations and beliefs, this study explored their experiences based on the role of their psychological contracts with their organisation and employers.
By contrast, either low other-interest (egoism) or low self-interest (altruism) increased the risk of burnout.
Vandita Dhariyal Title: How likely are you to leave your first job?However, little research addresses house waste as a psychosocial phenomenon.This research aimed to fill this gap using a method of Subjective Evidence-Based Ethnography (SEBE), which allows analysing waste from the perspective of people who experience it in a private context.Maria Zimbron-Alva Title: Practices to face and avoid engaging in corruption: Public officials’ experiences at their everyday job in a Mexican city.Abstract: Corruption is a pressing issue in the world and Mexico is no exception.The mainstream fight against corruption has been focussed in following the best practices around the world, designing a new institution (Sistema Nacional Anticorrupción) in charge of co-ordinating the multiple efforts across the government.However, the strategies to fight corruption are prominently rule-based and focused on creating severe sanctions (OECD, 2017).Findings showed that wasteful practices are mainly energy and water related and derive from physical and social stimuli (objects and people) interacting with less visible psychological factors (embodied habits and experiences).This study hopes to stimulate research in finding opportunities of improvement to make householders’ life easier and more sustainable for the planet.The conference presents a fantastic opportunity for alumni to reflect on their work, share the impact of their findings and to give current MSc students the chance to hear first-hand about the dissertation experience.
