Inspired by the recent SIOP conference, I've been mulling over my next career step lately. If anyone else is interested in the intersection of I-O consulting, research, and coaching, I would welcome hearing from you and sharing our experiences!

 

After several years as a manager/coach of a business analytics team at Liberty Mutual Insurance, I grew interested in the strategy and research behind management -- like how best to motivate, engage and compensate employees. So, that led me to my current job doing research with an Organizational Behavior professor, Ethan Bernstein. I’ve loved my time at HBS and at Liberty Mutual, and should anyone be interested in chatting more about these employers, let me know.  Recently, I have been mulling over how I can apply all of these skills (research, analysis/consulting, and coaching) going forward, especially now that I have my Master’s in I-O. If anyone is interested in the intersection of these fields too, I would welcome hearing from you and sharing our experiences.

Marissa Post

People Science Consultant at Humu

LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/marissa-post/

I'm a bit of a jack-of-all-trades in the people analytics space. Most of my experience is in internal consulting, but I currently work with external clients to elevate survey data analytics with additional data sources such as employee attrition, performance, and passive data. My favorite part of working in people analytics has been getting deep into the coding space where I've enjoyed learning to functionalize and scale analytics and develop interactive analytics experiences with Rshiny. Currently, I'm focused on expanding my coding and analytics skills by learning Python and more advanced machine-learning techniques. If any of these topics are also interesting to you, please don't hesitate to reach out!

What do you currently do as a professional IO?

 

Although my position at the Council on Aging is not centered around I/O Psychology, I am able to apply I/O practices in my organization. While much of my day-to-day work is with finances, transportation, and managing staff, I have been able to do a significant amount of work in change management as well. Much of this involves conducting trainings for staff and volunteers, creating and documenting departmental processes, and working with surveys and survey data to shape our programing.

 

Additionally, outside of the Council on Aging I am currently consulting for Dunamis, a nonprofit in Boston that offers arts management services and training for artists of color. I have worked with them on numerous projects around offer letter templates, staff development programs, and performance reviews. It’s been a great experience so far, and I hope to continue working with them on other Human Resources projects.

 

How long have you been a member of Baystate IO?

 

I have been a member of Baystate IO for about three years.

 

What is your favorite part of being a member of Baystate IO?

 

My favorite part of being a member of Baystate IO is being able to connect with other people in the field. In Massachusetts, it sometimes feels as if there are not many people with an IO background in the workforce, so it’s great to have a way to help make those connections.

 

When you are not working, what do you enjoy doing in your free time?

When I am not working, I’m usually out hiking or running when the weather allows for it. Otherwise, I’m relaxing at home while watching a show, playing videogames, or reading a book. I also love to sing in my band, Petrichor. Unfortunately, we have not had much of a chance to get together lately due to the pandemic, but we’re making plans for more performances ASAP!

What can other BayState IO members reach out to you for?

 

If anyone is interested in working with surveys or performance evaluation processes in their organizations, I would be more than happy to chat! I’ve learned how to blend I/O practices into my daily work and organizations I have worked for, which is one of the many reasons why I love this field so much!
