I-O and Employee Lifecycle

Industrial-Organizational (I-O) psychology is the scientific study of the workplace. The knowledge base and scientific methods of psychology are applied to issues of critical relevance to business, including talent management, coaching, assessment, selection, training, organizational development, motivation, leadership, and performance.

Information regarding I-O psychology is organized in the framework of the "employment lifecycle." The information in each of the sections was developed to help you better understand how I-O psychology can benefit organizations in each phase of the employment lifecycle. Click either one of the links below or on the corresponding section of the lifecycle diagram to learn more about how I-O psychology is being applied to that aspect of the employment lifecycle.
