February 2019 - With the nature of work rapidly evolving, the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) is advocating for the consideration of evidence-based I-O psychology as policymakers address the various challenges and opportunities related to areas such as the impact of automation and new technologies on the workforce.  This guidance document aims to inform federal stakeholders on the expertise of industrial and organizational (I-O) psychology and how it can help shape policies to better integrate technology into the workforce and build an effective “workforce of the future,” an emerging priority for Congress and federal agencies. SIOP has also organized an advocacy initiative to address the technology-enabled workforce, which will focus on topics such as automation, cybersecurity, teleworking and contingent workforces, STEM education and training pipelines, and implementation of new technologies.

  • The Impact of I-O Psychology on Transitioning Veterans to Civilian Work:

    September 2017 -
     As federal and congressional policy makers consider programs and legislation regarding the transition of service members from the battlefield to the workforce, the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) urges the application of evidence-based methods in industrial and organizational (I-O) psychology to enhance veteran employment experiences. This guidance document is meant to better inform policy makers about I-O psychology’s data-driven approach to identifying and alleviating a wide range of modern employment challenges facing veterans, including the translation of skills, decision-making capabilities, and support networks from military life, as well as the difficulty for civilian employers in recognizing promising veteran candidates. SIOP has developed an advocacy initiative of experts to provide guidance and assistance to federal decision makers as they seek to address issues related to the transition of veterans to the workplace.
