The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology will convene for its 25th annual conference this week in Atlanta, GA. 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.
This event brings together a diverse group of professionals with deep interest in measuring a wide range of factors from the world of work. We at Shaker are particularly pleased to be participating in five sessions this year. Topics covered will range from improving the candidate experience to the additional science power of multi-media in pre-employment testing to assessment design to reduce faking.
In addition to conference sessions, we are also a conference sponsor and exhibitor. Visit us in Booth 808.
Stop by and ask for a demo of a Virtual Job Tryout. You will see why brand conscious companies have come to expect more from assessments.
