Twenty Years of Technology at SIOP: Are I/O Psychologists Lagging?

 

If you are interested in the “Twenty Years of Technology at SIOP: Are I/O Psychologists Lagging?” poster at this year’s annual conference, or if you are simply itching to know more about technology and SIOP in general – then this is the perfect one-stop-shop for you! Below is all of the information you will need to catch up of anything you may may have missed, or to learn more about anything that you were particularly interested in.

 


 

Abstract: We examine the timelines of technology research at SIOP conferences since 1998. Findings indicate that, on average, I/O psychologists study technology milestones 6.55 years after they occur. Preliminary results also suggest that I/O psychologists have responded to technology milestones more quickly in recent years. Our study provides the SIOP community with diagnostic information to inform future research and conferences.

Workforce Readiness and the Future of Work

WAVE Lab is proud to announce the forthcoming edited volume, Workforce Readiness and the Future of Work, part of the SIOP Organizational Frontiers series. This book is a multidisciplinary collaboration with contributions from education, sociology, psychology, economics, policy, labor, government, and industry. You can pre-order the book here:

 

 

Workforce readiness is an issue that is of great national and societal importance. For the United States and other countries to thrive in a globally interconnected environment of wide-ranging opportunities and threats, the need to develop and maintain a skilled and adaptable workforce is critical. National investments in job training and schools remain essential in stimulating businesses and employment agencies to collaborate productively with educators who provide both training and vocational guidance.

 

Workforce Readiness and the Future of Work argues that the large-scale multifaceted efforts required to ensure a reliable and strong supply of talent and skill in the U.S. workforce should be addressed systematically, simultaneously, and systemically across disciplines of thought and levels of analysis. In a four-part framework, the authors cover the major areas of:

 

  • education in the K-12, vocational, postsecondary, and STEM arenas;
  • economic and labor market considerations;
  • employment, organizations, and the world of work;
  • laws, policies, and budgets at the federal, state, local, and military levels.

 

With contributions from leading scholars, this volume informs high-priority workforce effectiveness issues of current and future concern and concrete research, practice, and policy directions to generate novel insights of a multilevel and system-wide nature.

 

 

Congratulations Sarah!

WAVE Lab member Sarah Zarsky recently received the George Washington University Sustainability Scholars Award, which will provide $5000 to fund her research project on workplace tracking practices.

 

This research, to be showcased at The George Washington University Research Days on April 9th, focuses on individuals’ acceptance of and familiarity with workplace tracking – with specific emphasis on how workplace tracking can be used to monitor and increase sustainable behaviors.

 

Congratulations to Dr. Samuel Kaminsky

WAVE Lab member Samuel Kaminsky has successfully defended his dissertation, titled Video-Recorded Vs. Synchronous Interviews: Equivalence and Applicant Reactions. He conducted over 400 interviews with students, using either typical videoconferencing methods or one-way asynchronous methods.

 

Results suggest that video-recorded interviews lead to less cognitive load, fewer impression management behaviors, and improved perceptions of procedural justice. Interview performance was invariant across administration media. The results generally support the use of video-recorded interviewing as a replacement for initial structured online interviews.

 

Congratulations on this timely and useful study!

 

How Well Do You Fit With Your Job?
