The start of 2019 finds the Education and Training (E&T) Committee engaged in a variety of efforts to provide support to teachers in a diverse array of settings. In this update, we would like to highlight some of the resources that the Teaching Tools (TT) subcommittee of E&T oversees.

Technology-enhanced assessments for selection and development have increasingly flourished over the past several decades. Sophisticated assessment programs that weren’t possible even a few years ago can now be assembled and launched on a global scale to measure almost any attribute in any language with greater realism, efficiency, and precision than ever before. As a new generation of technology-driven applications comes of age, a host of new issues and opportunities have emerged which require assessment professionals to respond with an informed perspective that balances business’s return-on-investment priorities with appropriate professional and scientific rigor.

As I write this column, we are just one month away from the 2019 SIOP Conference, where we will be announcing the first Visionary Grant Call for Proposals.  The $100,000 grant will be funded, like so much other work, by I-O professionals and their friends and supporters.  But this is the first venture in which crowd-sourcing and donor-direction play major roles.

Living Wage Research Is Alive and Kicking—and not Just About Subsistence: A Rejoinder to Reburn et al.

Stuart C. Carr, Mary O’Neill Berry, John C. Scott, & Darrin Hodgetts Project GLOW (Global Living Organizational Wage)

Matthew Haynes 0 1120 Article rating: No rating

The purpose of this article is to provide an alternate perspective to the state of living wage research found in Reburn, Moyer, Knebel, and Bowler (2018).   These authors (cl)aimed to “hope to inspire research into the motivational impact associated with Living wage” (2018, p. 1).  However, that research is already well under way, in applied psychology (Smith, 2015), across SIOP (Scott, 2017), in SIOP publications (e.g., Gloss, Carr, Reichman, & Abdul-Nasiru, 2016), and by SIOP at the United Nations (e.g., SIOP, 2016; UNDP, 2014).  Our purpose in this collegial rebuttal is not simply to repeat the information already available in these publications and SIOP initiatives that span work and well-being, including occupational health psychology.  Rather, in the spirit of constructive dialogue, we review and propose revisions to Reburn et al.’s (2018) conceptualization, contextualization, and methodology. Closer inspection of extant research on living wages and well-being exposes a range of new ways to contribute nationally within the US, and also internationally toward the humanitarian goal of “Decent Work for All” (https://www.ilo.org/global/topics/sdg-2030/goal-8/lang--en/index.htm).
