Work and Organizational Psychology

An evidence-based approach to sustainable performance and business intelligence

Psychology

Psychology is the scientific and theory-based study of how individuals behave in different contexts. Psychologists examine why individuals differ from each other (e.g., personality, values, emotional competence, intelligence, skills), and why some groups of people may behave similarly (e.g., social norms and rules, national or organizational culture). The purpose of psychological science is to challenge and test common beliefs about human nature, understand and predict behavior, and determine how individuals and groups can develop, learn, and change over time.

Work and Organizational Psychology

Work and Organizational Psychologists are professionals committed to improving performance and quality of life at the individual, group, and organizational level. They use their knowledge and experience in psychology, management, organizational behavior, and economics to analyze workplace challenges, propose and implement solutions, and accompany individuals and groups in their quest for continuous improvement. The purpose of any intervention is to build on existing strengths and to prevent distress.
