Employee health, well-being, wellness, and safety are consistently top trends in I-O psychology. It was the #2 Top 10 Work Trend in 2021 and will make an appearance on this year’s list, to be released later this month. Benefits costs continue to rise, and organizations continue to invest in helping employees manage stress to help reduce the physical, mental, and emotional impacts that drive increased costs. Those costs are both direct costs to the balance sheet and indirect costs like lower engagement, performance, and retention. With COVID-19, a much greater focus on safety emerged for both essential and nonessential workers; and many employees shifted to working from home and experienced greater integration between work and family. Fletcher served as a trend champion for this topic in 2021, along with Maryana Arvan. He will share information and updates live from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. EST January 27 on all of these channels: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn YouTube Organized by the SIOP Electronic Communication Committee, the SIOP Conversation Series features thought leaders in academia and industry in an “Ask Me Anything” style conversation about their work and I-O-related topics.
