SIOP Encourages Members to Help Spread I-O Psychology Awareness

SIOP is excited to celebrate our second annual Smarter Workplace Awareness Month this September.

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 the entire month of September to celebrating I-O psychology and its impact on business, employees, and society," explained Liberty Munson, Chair of the Media Subcommittee of the SIOP Visibility Committee, who helped organize the awareness month. "This is the second year that we've highlighted the value I-O psychology brings to organizations and their employees, and we hope this event will continue annually."

"The science and practice of I-O psychology has contributed greatly to the workplace and continues to help shape best practices within organizations today,” she added. “I-O psychologists continue to lead workplaces into the future, helping to make them more efficient, effective, productive, and engaged. We really hope this month helps increase appreciation for and awareness of I-O psychology and the I-O psychologists who use their 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, Newsbriefs, and social media for updates and news. (Pssst: We are also planning to unveil a new video about I-O psychology by the end of the month, so keep an eye out!)
