What is Industrial-Organizational Psychology? Industrial-Organizational (I-O) psychology is a branch of psychology that applies psychological principles and theories to the workplace. It involves the study of human behavior in organizations, and aims to improve the well-being and performance of employees, as well as the effectiveness of organizations. I-O psychology is concerned with a wide range of topics, such as employee selection and assessment, training and development, performance appraisal, job analysis, motivation, job satisfaction, leadership, team building, organizational culture, and work-life balance. I-O psychologists may work in a variety of settings, such as corporations, government agencies, consulting firms, and academic institutions. They use their knowledge of psychology and research methods to address issues related to personnel management, organizational development, and workplace behavior. I-O psychologists may also work as consultants, providing expertise to organizations on a project-by-project basis, or as academic researchers, conducting research and teaching in universities and colleges.
