Job Description for Industrial-Organizational Psychologist
Industrial/organizational psychologists assist in research design, assessment exercises, interviews, and survey work for organizations. Their goal is to analyze human behavior and interactions in a workplace environment. These psychologists work with a small team to improve selection tools, testing programs, policies, and other human-resources issues. This often involves counseling management, as well as activities such as focus groups, presentations, survey administration, and interpreting research results. Industrial/organizational psychologists regularly communicate with both high- and low-level employees with a minimal knowledge of the involved topics, so the ability to clearly explain the work to non-psychologists is essential. This position requires regular analysis of relevant research, as well as the innovation and creativity to find data and improvements for their organization. Industrial/organizational psychologists generally work full time in an office environment, and some travel or teleconferencing may be required to work with remote offices. Industrial/organizational psychologists may also provide instruction to junior psychologists on their team, depending on the position.
