Industrial Psychology (also known as I/O Psychology) is the study of human behavior in the workplace. It originated from the Hawthorne Studies conducted in 1920 where it demonstrated the importance of social context at work.
This branch of psychology became recognized in the 1960s and although it’s one of the newer disciplines, the field has developed extensive research and tools on how to maximize human performance in the workplace
Whether through the development of psychometric tests or managing organizational change, the practice of industrial psychology can be applied to all industries.
Many I/O practitioners can be found working in Human Resources or Management Consulting. Over the last 15 years, I’ve specialized in combining I/O practices with Project Management to develop right- and left-brain strategies.
