Connecting donors with I-O Psychology Professionals to Create Smarter Workplaces
Rapid advancement in I-O psychology and the organizational sciences now is surely needed. The mania about artificial intelligence systems and big data is at flood tide, with no shortage of need for critical and clear thinking about creating smarter workplaces. We face great challenges in the workplace from the changing nature of work to sexual harassment in the workplace to a multi-generational workforce. These issues stretch beyond companies and cultures and demand the best thinking, collaboration, and collective attention.
Mirian Graddick-Weir (President, Weir Group, LLC and SIOP Foundation Board Trustee) and Milt Hakel (SIOP Foundation President) conducted interviews with 11 CHROs to answer the horizon questions by: (1) identifying significant trends impacting their industries; and (2) selecting 4-5 areas where they believe the profession can benefit from having more evidence-based research to guide critical business decisions, actions and outcomes. The themes that emerged from the interviews can be found in the Appendix.
