SIOP Encourages Members to Help Spread I-O Psychology Awareness

SIOP has announced September as the very first Smarter Workplace Awareness Month!

The month will be devoted to celebrating industrial-organizational (I-O) psychology and all of the evidence-based practices that help make the workplace better for employees and employers.

"We are excited to devote an entire month to celebrating I-O psychology and its impact on business and society," explained Liberty Munson, chair of the Media Subcommittee of the SIOP Visibility Committee, who helped organize the awareness month.

"The science and practice of I-O psychology contributes so much to making the workplace more efficient and the workforce more effective, productive, and engaged,” she added. “Overall, we hope this awareness month will help others to see how I-O psychologists use science to make the workplace smarter."

Throughout September, SIOP will be highlighting I-O psychology research and practice, exploring the history of the I-O field, and celebrating the contributions I-O has made to create a smarter workplace for employers and employees. Check our website, newsletter, and social media for updates and news.
