About

Overview

Industrial and organizational psychologists help develop strategies that optimize human potential and build better organizations by focusing on behavior within the specific environmental, technological, and social environment of the workplace. From the development of individual employees to factors of overall organizational structure, the use of psychology and the analysis of human behavior play significant roles in the contemporary workplace, a workplace increasingly impacted by government influences, growing consumer awareness, skill shortages, and the changing nature of the workforce. Bottom line, I/O psychologists contribute to an organization's success by resolving its human problems and improving the performance and well-being of its people. This encyclopedia will present a thorough overview of the cross-disciplinary field of industrial and organizational behavior for students, researchers, and professionals in the areas of psychology, business, management, and human resources.
