Assignment 3: Psychology in Organizations
The field of industrial/organizational (I/O) psychology is relatively new in the eyes of many organizations. As representatives of the field of industrial/organizational (I/O) psychology, we frequently find ourselves educating our audiences on how industrial/organizational (I/O) influences the workplace.
As a representative of the industrial/organizational (I/O) profession, you have been asked to make a presentation at the next local chapter meeting of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The meeting planning committee believes that the audience of human resources (HR) and business professionals is interested in how psychology can be directly applied to the workplace.
For this assignment, you need to create and make a 5- to 10-minute presentation (use an audio component such as voice-over or recording).
Your presentation should:
- Define the industrial/organizational (I/O) field.
- Discuss three examples of how psychology can be used in the workplace, including the benefits to applying psychological concepts.
- Recommend three ways to help human resources (HR) and business professionals to incorporate applied industrial/organizational (I/O) concepts in their businesses’ strategic plans.
You should present yourself as an expert in the field and support your points using scholarly sources.
Your final product will be a 5- to 10-minute presentation (using Microsoft PowerPoint, Prezi, PowToon, or other presentation software and including audio or voice-over) and utilize at least two scholarly sources in your research. Apply APA standards to cite sources. Your presentation should be written in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
