This chapter outlines the premise of this book as a whole, and presents methods for directly involving employers in the research process. It reviews the characteristics of employers that should be considered when trying to better understand workplace policies and practices. The chapter also considers challenges in working closely with employers, such as gaining buy-in early in the research process, gaining the trust of the organization, identifying a key organizational contact, and negotiating continued participation in the research process. Research protocols such as assurances for the protection of human subjects can also present unique challenges. This chapter ends with selected “lessons learned” from research taken over the past several years in working across many employer interests.

Keywords:   employers, workplace policies, workplace practices, research process, research protocols, employer interests, employer participation
