MIT Warehouse Work, Health, and Well-Being Study
The purpose of the Warehouse Work, Health, and Well-Being study is to understand what it’s like to work at a fulfillment center in general and to understand how changes in the workplace affect workers’ experiences. We also hope to understand how work conditions may affect health and well-being, personal and family life, and decisions about whether to stay in the job or leave.
Participants can choose to participate in the research study – it is completely voluntary. Answers to any surveys will be kept confidential and will not affect employment status.
We do not anticipate any risks to participating in this study other than those faced in day-to-day work life. There are no direct benefits to research participants, though our research findings may inform future changes to work practices and help researchers understand the unique challenges of warehouse work today.
