BayState IO is established for the purpose of connecting members, exchanging ideas and techniques, and contributing to the visibility of Industrial-Organizational Psychology in Massachusetts.
We do this by providing in-person and virtual opportunities for members to learn evidence-based practices, further their development, collaborate, and apply Industrial-Organizational Psychology in the local community.
Industrial-Organizational (IO) Psychology is the scientific study of working and the application of that science to workplace issues facing individuals, teams, and organizations. IO Psychologists apply the scientific method to investigate issues of critical relevance to individuals, businesses, and society and apply it to workplace issues such as: Testing, Selection & Promotion, Job Design, Assessment, Evaluation, Organization Development & Change, Training & Development, Engagement, Motivation, and Compensation.
