Abstract: 
Suffering from persistent bad press about employee misconduct and low morale, Clearwater Fire & Rescue chiefs reached out to local I-O psychologists for help. During this interactive session, attendees will hear directly from Clearwater’s fire chiefs as well as I-O psychology, HR, and public relations professionals about an intervention to diagnose and address the department’s challenges.
