The science of… Occupational Psychology

I did it! Yay me! A complete look at the Science of… Occupational Psychology. The purpose of the series of posts has been simply to provide some better insight into the methodologies that occ psychs use. L&D is my heart and soul, and long may it continue. I enjoy what occ psych has to offer though, and I don’t know if I’ll venture back into that world proper, but it is a fascinating world. Not least because some smart folks identified a need for a new type of consultant and produced this new profession!

Cynicism aside, occupational psychology will continue to be the specialists that organisations seek to help produce the structures I’ve mentioned because they’ve got a business to worry about. HR teams will know these things are needed, but often have so many operational and strategic tasks that need to be achieved, that there’s no wonder consultants are sought.

So that’s it. There’s no more. I’m tired of 2 weeks of posting. Gonna take a break for a few days and go back to my infrequent posting and ranting. It’s much more fun. For me, at least. I thank you 🙂

A great and obvious suggestion from Martin Couzins.
