In an ongoing effort to share I-O expertise with organizations, HR professionals, and business executives, the SIOP Visibility Committee has recently published two new white papers.
The white papers, “Improving Communication in Virtual Teams”and “Building a Strategy to Identify, Develop, & Retain High Potentials,” can be found on the White Papers page, located under the “Publications” dropdown menu of the SIOP website.
The new papers are both part of the “Hot Topics” series aimed at providing short briefs on high-interest topics in I-O. These papers are written with a non-I-O audience in mind, and SIOP members are encouraged to use these papers as a resource to share with clients, business partners, and others who are interested in learning more about a topic.
The Visibility Committee Hot Topic white papers are written by I-O PhD students and undergo reviews from both a committee member and an external reviewer who has expertise in the topic area. This work is managed by the HR/Business subcommittee of the SIOP Visibility Committee. The committee was created to enhance the visibility of I-O psychology to inform thought leaders in business, HR, and government, as well as students and the general public, of the ways in which I-O can improve the profitability of business and the productivity and well-being of the workforce. The Visibility Committee comprises six subcommittees, each with unique goals related to promoting I-O: Branding, HR/Business, Media/Outreach, Metrics, Public Policy/Advocacy, and Students/Academia.
