SIOP Virtual Workshops

As part of its commitment to providing educational programs on important topics related to the workforce and the workplace, SIOP is pleased to offer occasional virtual workshops.

Led by highly accomplished researchers and practitioners, SIOP workshops provide scientifically derived insights and evidence based recommendations on timely workplace psychology and workforce management topics.

The October and November workshops are presented in proud partnership with Georgia Association for Industrial-Organizational Psychology (GAIOP), a local I-O group with a long history of producing high-quality I-O programming at the regional level. SIOP has partnered with GAIOP to provide continuing education credit for its workshop participants over the years and is pleased to now extend our partnership with GAIOP to expand the audience for its workshops to the SIOP membership and beyond.

Workshops are open to the general public, but SIOP members are able to attend at discounted rates. Individual workshops may offer CE credits. Credit availability for specific workshops will be indicated in the sections on this page describing general requirements for the credit granting organization.
