Age and Job Performance: Is the Public at Risk?

A multi-disciplinary team of I-O psychologists, exercise physiologists, and occupational physicians were asked to consider issues of aging and job performance for public safety officers. After extensive research, the team concluded that public safety officers should be treated like all other occupations with respect to retirement possibilities. If they could demonstrate fitness for duty, they should be permitted to keep their jobs regardless of age. This recommendation led to some interesting legislative and policy debate. The research and ensuing debate will be reviewed in this presentation, as well as an update on current policy in selected public safety departments.

Answers to Lingering Questions About Personality Research

A meta-analysis of meta-analyses examines the divergent conclusions of previous quantitative reviews. A new meta-analysis explores Five Factor relationships with performance and turnover. A primary study illustrates tradeoffs between broad and narrow trait measures. A final meta-analysis assesses core self-evaluations as a broad construct capable of predicting job satisfaction and performance.

The Theory of Work Adjustment: Implications and
Extensions for I-O Psychology

In the 1950s and 1960s, researchers at the University of Minnesota began investigating factors related to successful outcomes of vocational rehabilitation efforts. The result of their empirical efforts was a model defining vocational adjustment as a mutually satisfying, transactional relationship between the individual and the work environment. Three papers discuss current applications of the Theory of Work Adjustment to studies of rater policy capturing, affective reactions to work, and adaptation to change.
