Sounding polyphonic stories, part II. The phase of listening in data collection

Sounding polyphonic stories, part II. The phase of listening in data collection

In the Netherlands, future staffing of elderly care will demand a big effort and a lot of creativity of health care organizations and the government. In this study an unconventional qualitative, narrative methodology is applied to throw a new light on the significance having a job and working in elderly care has for health care professionals and to use this as a source of inspiration for labor market policymakers. The methodology is rather unconventional because it doesn’t only focuses on the lingual content of the stories, but also includes other significant aspects of storytelling (e.g., voice and sound). Therefore musical work forms (e.g., music listening and singing) are used additionally.In the first phase of data collection stories of care professionals about the intertwining of their lifeline and career have been collected. In the second, listening phase HR-professionals listened to the stories told by the care professionals and used them as a source of inspiration for HR policy innovation.In a former article the methodology of the storytelling phase has been described. This article treats the methodology of the listening phase in the data collection. Later on the analysis methods will be described.
