SIOP plays a special role as an official nongovernmental organization (NGO) with consultative status to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. The SIOP-UN committee organizes all of SIOP’s UN-related efforts, including projects in support of the UN Sustainability Goals, and the submission of (requested) statements on issues pertinent to work and organizations (e.g., the aging workforce, living wages, humanitarian work psychology, and the economic empowerment of underrepresented women and girls). As part of this work, SIOP has also become an official United Nations Global Compact participant. This means we have formally signed on to 10 humanitarian/sustainability principles surrounding human rights, labor, environment, and anticorruption.

We received over 1,420 submissions for the 2017 SIOP conference in Orlando! Around 950 submissions were accepted for what is expected to be a first-rate conference. FUN FACT: a whopping 91 submissions included reproducible research, a new addition to SIOP 2017, and many were very highly rated, so be sure to flag a few of these when you see them in the program (way to think forward, SIOP!). In fact, so many were highly rated that, along with our highly attended HR Track (on Friday), SIOP 2017 is also featuring a reproducible research track on Saturday. More details to come on those tracks, so stay tuned!

Over the past few years, SIOP has researched and published a list of the top 10 workplace trends. For those who may not have participated in the surveys previously, this list is developed by interviewing and then surveying SIOP members to see what trends may be ahead based on research and what I-O psychologists see changing in their organizations. Members are asked what “the next big thing" is that organizations will research or implement in the upcoming year and what trends members anticipate. The list is established by feedback from hundreds of I-O professionals. The top 10 workplace trends of 2016 can be found on SIOP’s website.
