About the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology

Welcome to the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology’s (SIOP) web site. 

SIOP is the premier membership organization for the science and practice of I-O psychology. While an independent organization with its own governance, SIOP also represents Division 14 of the American Psychological Association and is an organizational affiliate of the Association for Psychological Science.

I-O psychology is a dynamic and growing field that addresses 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, improving diversity and inclusion, and facilitating organizational change.

If this is your first time visiting our site, we welcome you to browse through the wealth of information and resources available to visitors and members alike. I hope you will be inspired by all the ways SIOP members strive to make work better for everyone.
