Remote work has become almost synonymous with working from home, or WFH, in the past few weeks as offices around the globe are adapting to life in the time of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Several members of SIOP, and several of the businesses that sponsor SIOP events, have been studying remote work, virtual teams, and related issues for years.
I-O psychologists specialize in understanding human behavior at work and creating evidence-based programs and practices to help organizations and workers thrive.
To help business leaders and employees adapt to the novel circumstances being caused by the novel coronavirus, SIOP is gathering together member and sponsor-created resources, accessible through this page. See the links below and check back periodically as we will be adding more resources as they are developed.
Businesses seeking expert assistance to help their organizations and employees can find it in the SIOP Consultant Locator.
