From the ground up and top down, businesses are changing how they function. More than ever, large portions of the population are working from home, and those who cannot work from home are experiencing heightened health and safety accommodations in the workplace. With so many changes occurring across all sectors of industry, workplace policies are something on everyone’s mind, and that leaves us wondering:
As the way we work fundamentally changes, how will these radical adjustments impact the way business is done in the future?
The professionals working in the field of industrial/organizational psychology are focused on helping employees and businesses answer this question and navigate their way through present and future challenges.
The Degree That’s Changing the Workplace
I/O psychologists understand that a business, organization, and society cannot prosper if its individual members are not properly cared for. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light the fact that not every company has a healthy working environment, well-established safety precautions, and policies that ensure the success of both the business and its employees in the case of an emergency. By building and improving the systems and processes needed to keep business running smoothly, I/O psychologists ensure a happier, healthier, more productive workforce, both today and in the future.
This in-demand field has been experiencing rapid growth in recent years and, as the workforce adapts to a rapidly changing landscape, the need for highly-qualified I/O psychologists will become even more critical.
