The approach to achieving the research objectives

Objectives will be approached via a deep immersion into the well-being of workers. The aim is to test some concepts with constructive potential, as identified from the existing literature and my previous field research as well as personal insights gained through working in and developing an understanding of the industry. This research uses an objectivist ontological approach to understand how workers' well-being is impacted, while experimenting by testing several direct approaches to improving workers' well-being through the theoretical lens of PsyCap. The epistemological approach is social constructivism, in response to the subject matter. Technology will be used to proved daily access, currently for these academic purposes only, to daily input from workers. If applied more widely this method could allow industry professionals daily access to the people most affected by conditions in their global supply chains.
