I-O psychology is a dynamic and growing field that encompasses workplace issues at the individual and organizational level. I-O psychologists apply research that improves the well-being and performance of people and the organizations that employ them. This involves everything from workforce planning, employee selection, and leader development to studying job attitudes and job motivation, implementing work teams, and facilitating organizational change.

SIOP's Advocacy Initiative
SIOP is working to strengthen support for I-O psychology research and practice among national policy decision makers. To assist in this mission, SIOP has enlisted the help of Lewis-Burke Associates (Lewis-Burke). Lewis-Burke is a full service government relations firm located in Washington, DC that specializes in providing comprehensive federal representation for scientific associations and institutions of higher education. Lewis-Burke, working with SIOP, will develop a strategic advocacy agenda, build support and coalition activities, expand federal agency requests for and utilization of I-O research results and practice capabilities, enhance the membership’s understanding of the federal political process as it relates to science policy and funding, and build relationships with members of Congress and federal agencies.
