Industrial & Organizational Psychology
In Industrial & Organizational Psychology, we explore human behavior in relation to work and apply psychological theories and principles to organizations and individuals in their workplaces and to the working lives of individuals in general.
We focus on researching the behavior and attitudes of employees and how these can be improved through recruitment procedures, training programs, feedback and management systems.
We use numerous methods such as surveys, experiments, quasi-experiments and observational studies. We use a variety of data sources, including human judgments, historical databases, objective measures of work performance (e.g. sales volumes), as well as questionnaires and surveys.
