What is Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology?
I-O psychologists use science and statistics to solve workplace and organizational issues to help workers thrive. They help organizations by thoroughly analyzing job tasks, selecting the best employees, training employees, objectively rating employee performance, determining what factors retain good employees, discovering what stressors make jobs difficult, and through finding and developing great managers and leaders. In addition, I-O psychologists explore how compensation affects performance, how to make workplaces safer, and by analyzing what can help an organization grow, change, and adapt.
