Abstract

The case study describes research process, the choice of research paradigm, and research methods for the study of incidence of centrally reduced working time at Belarusian industrial enterprises. The adherence of the management of Belarusian companies to Soviet-style organizational culture which assumes complete secrecy over issues of employment relations and personnel management coupled with the lack of secondary data made the author create a specific combination of qualitative and quantitative methods to extract trustworthy information. The role of gatekeepers and important ethical decisions are also discussed.
