Gratitude in workplace research: a Rossian approach

Gibbs, Paul ORCID logoORCID: (2009) Gratitude in workplace research: a Rossian approach. Journal of Education and Work, 22 (1) . pp. 55-66. ISSN 1363-9080 [Article] (doi:10.1080/13639080802709638)


Workplace learning is complex in form. It is explorative, social and creative enquiry, and because it is carried out in the socio-political domain of the workplace, it is potentially exploitative of all who contribute. This paper suggests that the workplace researcher might conceptualise the contributions of participants as benefits and/or gifts, to which the appropriate response is gratitude. The paper discusses the notion of gratitude and how it might be expressed in workplace research.
