I/o Psychology Implementation
- Industrial & Organization Psychology
- Industrial and Organization Psychology, known as I/O Psychology, is the scientific study of employees, workplaces, and organizations. Industrial and organizational psychology contributes to an organization's success by improving the work setting and the performance, satisfaction and well-being of its people. At Lighthouse Recruiting we focus on Human Capital and Organizational Behavior allowing us to assess competencies, knowledge, social and personality attributes. We research and identify how employee behaviors and attitudes can be improved through hiring practices, training programs, feedback and management systems. Here are some of the programs we address within our I/O Psychology services.
- Job Analysis
- Job analysis is often described as the cornerstone of successful employee selection efforts and performance management initiatives. A job analysis involves the systematic collection of information about a job. Job-analytic methods are often described as belonging to one of two approaches.  One approach, the task-oriented job analysis, involves an examination of the duties, tasks, and/or competencies required by a job. The second approach, a worker-oriented job analysis, involves an examination of the knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics required to successfully perform the work. These two approaches are not mutually exclusive. Various adaptations of job-analytic methods include competency modeling, which examines large groups of duties and tasks related to a common goal or process, and practice analysis, which examines the way work is performed in an occupation across jobs.
