On January 23, the 33rd day of the partial government shutdown, SIOP President Talya Bauer sent the following letter to congressional leadership, urging them to consider I-O psychology findings on the destabilizing impacts of shutdown furloughs on the federal workforce.  The letter aligns with both SIOP’s advocacy mission to ensure I-O psychology research and practice are considered in the development of federal policies and the Society’s commitment to support our members impacted by the partial shutdown.     

President Trump has since agreed to negotiate a short-term reopening of the federal government to enable discussions on a larger border security and immigration compromise.  SIOP will continue to provide I-O psychology findings to policymakers to ensure the well-being of the federal workforce continues to be considered.  

A Message of Support for Federal Workers

SIOP’s 10,000+ members work in a variety of settings, including the federal government as employees and contractors.  For this reason, we are particularly thrilled about hosting our Annual Conference in National Harbor, Maryland just outside of Washington, DC this coming April 4-6, 2019.  Despite our excitement, SIOP would be remiss in not recognizing the hardships imposed by the current partial government shutdown and the negative impact it has had on many of our members in the Washington DC area and beyond, all federal employees, the larger communities affected, and the United States overall.
