SIOP Welcomes New Bloggers to Its I-O Blog
The SIOP Exchange
is making a big change this year as SIOP welcomes a new group of contributing bloggers!
This group of SIOP members serves as opinion leaders and conversation starters. They will contribute regularly to the content of the Exchange on various topics related to the field of I-O psychology. The bloggers will discuss topics as diverse as innovation in organizations; employee well-being; leadership development/careers and legal issues; education and training of undergraduate and graduate students; groups and teams; I-O and sustainability; selection/assessment; legal issues; entrepreneurs/entrepreneurship; and women in the workplace.
The SIOP blogger crew is also a diverse one, with Members, Student Affiliates, and Associates from science and practice, working in organizations such as Northern Illinois University, Denton Consulting Group, PSRI, University of Baltimore, Select International, Inc., and SAWA Consulting and as organizational consultants.

The Electronic Communications Committee sent out a call for bloggers last fall to write on topics important to SIOP members and add to the content of SIOP’s official I-O blog. From that call, we have assembled a blog team of, not necessarily seasoned bloggers, but those with something to say to help spur dialogue and debate on a professional platform.
Be prepared for a variety of new topics and insights from SIOP’s own members, such as the first blog post of this year, “The New Class: Tech Savvy Millennials,” by Christopher Salute.

Require immediate feedback? Speak informally with their supervisors? Will they sell to their customers via text message instead of a face-to-face meeting? Will they even be capable of the latter?”
