Introduction

Industrial-organizational (I-O) psychology is the scientific study of the workplace. Rigor and methods of psychology are applied to issues of critical relevance to business, including talent management, coaching, assessment, selection, training, organizational development, performance, and work-life balance. While there is abundant research on I/O psychology in the extant literature, this publication will incorporate and synthesize the most recent research advancements and discovery into one volume for future research and practical application by the target audiences.

Objective

The value of this proposed publication would be to provide business and government executives, researchers, and graduate students of I/O psychology with reference material that could be used in strategic human resource management operations, among other functions such as talent management, international assignments, securityi strategic planning, and international management.

Target Audience

The target audience includes business and government executives, graduate and undergraduate business and psychology students, and scholar-practitioners who need a single source regarding contemporary issues involved in I/O psychology and its place in the modern workforce.
