SIOP Top 10 Work Trends 

Each year since 2014, SIOP has surveyed its members about the top issues they are seeing impact the workplace.  These lists provide insights into trends shaping the workplaces of today and tomorrow.

The Top 10 Work Trends represent broad, complex issues of modern society posing difficult challenges to the business world. Industrial-organizational psychologists can help organizations grappling with these issues find solutions that are right for their organizations and their staff.

The topics on the 2021 list are multifaceted and complex—some have been on prior years’ lists and others are very focused trends resulting from the distress of a global pandemic and critical social issues that came to the forefront in 2020.
