Matthew Haynes / Thursday, January 9, 2020 / Categories: Items of Interest Plan Now for Preconference Workshops When registering for the 2020 SIOP Conference in Austin, consider adding the preconference workshops that take place on Wednesday, April 22, the day before the actual conference begins. SIOP preconference workshops are a great opportunity to learn from leading experts in the field in an intimate, interactive setting; network with peers facing the same challenges you are; and, for those who need them, earn continuing education (CE) credits. This year’s workshops focus on a number of issues at the forefront of our field, including the impact of technology on I-O psychology and the world of work (artificial intelligence, the future of work, data visualization), strategic HR management (agile HR, linking human capital initiatives to business results), and cutting edge OD techniques (storytelling, employee listening systems, “sticky” leadership development, inclusive coaching). They also offer an opportunity for busy practitioners to keep up with cutting edge and emerging I-O research. Still not convinced? Listen to what some of last year’s workshop attendees had to say: Loved it!! Can’t wait to use it in the workplace!! This was very valuable and I look forward to applying this knowledge and the best practices I learned. Awesome job—loved the workshop. Lots of insights to take home! Really enjoyed the content and the external tools that are available for our use after the workshop. It is information that can hopefully assist in propelling my career forward! Really great compilation of what’s out there and what the presenters have done with it and fantastic translation into what to take back to do at our individual organizations. The presenters were fantastic. I especially appreciated the practical applications. The real stories about their own companies were very valuable. It helped that they had so much real-world expertise and knowledge. The workshop was actionable, well-paced, and incredibly valuable! Excellent workshop! Very valuable, accessible, relevant, and rigorous. This workshop was built around an optimal integration of research, evidence/examples from practice, and professional insight. Truly top notch! Great balance of science and practice. I appreciated that the workshop presenters represented both perspectives. Fantastic workshop! The format of presentation, interaction, and self-reflection activities was perfect. Great session—learned a lot myself and gives me the opportunity to make sure we leverage our resources better. Thank you! This provides an easy way to look at capabilities across the organization. Very valuable and great information to take back to my team. As these testimonials demonstrate, the preconference workshops are one of the best developmental opportunities SIOP has to offer. Take advantage by signing up today!
