Mission and Vision

Our Mission

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 Psychology

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.

We seek to be a community where members learn from one another and engage with ideas to advance science in the workplace.  For more information about membership:
