Psychologists are clinically trained in interpersonal and system dynamics. They are able to step in and implement treatment knowledge to help put a business or organization back on track to growth. By observing and measuring the processes involved in “work,” the psychologist can hone in on the “symptoms” of the business or organization, implement intervention and promote sustained achievement.
Psychology and behavioral science have much to offer to those working in organizations and the organizations themselves. Industrial and organizational (I/O) psychologists focus on the behavior of employees in the workplace. They apply psychological principles and research methods to improve the overall work environment, including performance, communication, professional satisfaction and safety.
