Industrial-organizational (IO) psychology applies psychological theories and principles to organizations. Questions about workplace productivity, quality of work(-life), structure of work, leadership as well as the effect of personal traits are important research topics in this field.
In this Podcast Session I talked to Prof. Dr. Tanja Bipp, professor for industrial-organizational psychology at the University of Wuerzburg. We talk about the implications of digital transformation on individual workers, workplace environment, and productivity. We also discussed current research on skills and competences of the future, job-crafting, and the potential of AI in context of HR selection and development. The first part is about the autonomy paradox and the power of (learning) goals.
