Industrial and Organizational Psychology

Industrial and organizational psychology (also known as I–O psychology, industrial–organizational psychology, industrial psychology, work psychology, organizational psychology, or personnel psychology) is the scientific study of employees, workplaces, and organizations. Industrial–organizational psychologists contribute to an organization's success by improving the performance and well-being of its people. An I–O psychologist researches and identifies how behaviors and attitudes can be improved through hiring practices, training programs, and feedback systems. I–O psychology can also be viewed as the equivalent of the economics concept of human capital.

An applied science, I–O psychology is represented by Division 14 of the American Psychological Association, known formally as the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP).
