“Selling” I-O psychology to non-I-O psychologists: A perspective on small, medium, and large changes
Author ORCID Identifier
Industrial and Organizational Psychology
As Kath etal.'s (Reference Kath, Salter, Bachiochi, Brown and Hebl2021) focal article suggests, industrial and organizational (I-O) psychology remains an unknown area of study to many. Even within the field of psychology, many are unaware of I-O psychology and what I-O psychologists contribute to theory and practice (Salter etal., Reference Salter, Allen, Chao, DiazGranados, Gibson, Reiter-Palmon and Shuffler2018). Informal discussions among directors of I-O psychology graduate programs indicate that many of our students do not hear about I-O psychology until later in their college career, and some discover the field only after they graduate. This lack of clarity has implications for recruitment and education related to I-O psychology, as well as how I-O psychology contributes to education across domains in general.
