Industrial/Organizational Development Counsellors

Industrial/Organizational Development

Industrial/Organizational Development needs are met by I/O psychologists and counsellors. Many are also trained as Executive Coaches. If your company is facing issues with worker behavior and attitudes, low performance or a lack of leadership and productivity, it may be a good time to enroll the services of an Industrial/Organizational Development  consultant.

Many people in the global workforce are working in roles where they don't really belong. When someone is not fulfilling their personal objectives, or if their careers don't match their personal values and goals, they are bound to become disillusioned and depressed. As a result of poor work-life balance, poor job satisfaction and lack of fulfillment in their roles in a company, people's performance standards will drop and they will become unproductive.

The management styles and social norms within a company also affects individual behavior within the organization. I/O psychologists and counsellors or coaches assess these issues within a company to help improve individual performance and psychological well being within a company. The task is performed by assessing organizational structures, and role expectations to see how those factors influence the behavior or individuals in an organization. Through understanding these factors the aim is to improve individual mental health and performance which will benefit the company as a whole.

I/O psychologists and counsellors focus on six main areas, including training and developments, employee selection, ergonomics, performance management, work life, and organizational management. Most Industrial/Organizational Development  psychologists specialize in one or more of the fields. The psychologist will perform screening tests and surveys and observe a range of tasks to see which areas of a business can benefit from Industrial/Organizational Development.
