More people are becoming aware of I-O psychology’s relevance and business benefits. Many SIOP members are helping raise the profession’s visibility, and these are the media mentions we found from November 27, 2017 through January 31, 2018.

We scan the media on a regular basis but don’t catch everything.  So, please feel free to send us your media mentions. We amplify them on social media and share them in this column. Use the column to look for project collaborators, spark ideas for research programs, and keep up with your colleagues.

Rodney Lowman is involved in an advisory capacity, but his primary role will be serving on the recently announced APA Ethics Code Revision Task Force (ECTF).
