Congratulations to Dr. Leslie Miller and Sara Pemble

Congratulations to Dr. Leslie Miller and Sara Pemble on their successful paper presentation and panel discussion at the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) convention in Chicago, Illinois.  The presentation team included I-O psychology, HR, and public relations professionals.  Further, two Department Chiefs from the Clearwater (FL) Fire & Rescue participated on the panel.

The presentation, “Misconduct in the Firehouse: How to Foster Cultural Change when Everyone is Watching,” was a report of a successful organizational change intervention and featured a detailed review of the project with comments from the two fire chiefs. Suffering from persistent bad press stemming from employee misconduct and low morale, Clearwater Fire & Rescue chiefs reached out to local I-O psychologists for help. During this interactive session, attendees learned about an intervention to diagnose and address the department’s challenges.
