Welcome to IO-OB-HR

Industrial-Organizational Psychology (IO)

Organizational Behaviour (OB)

Human Resources (HR)

Our mission is to raise the awareness of industry, business, the public sector, and other organizations to the field of Industrial-Organizational Psychology and its intersection with the better known fields of Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources Management. A persistent problem for the field of Industrial-Organizational Psychology is that few people in the wider world know what it is. This presents a challenge when recruiting students to graduate programs, finding employment, or bidding for business contracts. Exacerbating this unfortunate state of affairs is that even those who know of I-O Psychology--including I-O psychologists--they still have trouble distinguishing it from the better known fields of Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources Management. At best, this causes confusion when parsing and identifying the arenas in which the three fields are practised; at worst, the unique skills and training of I-O psychologists are not brought to bear on significant organizational problems. Our mission is to bring together scholars and practitioners for the common purpose of clarifying and promoting what Industrial-Organizational Psychologists do, not just emphasizing the unique value of their professional training, but also how they can add value to, and in combination with, the fields of organizational behaviour and human resources management. - Greg A.
