Book description

Experts from across all industrial-organizational (IO) psychology describe how increasingly rapid technological change has affected the field. In each chapter, authors describe how this has altered the meaning of IO research within a particular subdomain and what steps must be taken to avoid IO research from becoming obsolete. This Handbook presents a forward-looking review of IO psychology's understanding of both workplace technology and how technology is used in IO research methods. Using interdisciplinary perspectives to further this understanding and serving as a focal text from which this research will grow, it tackles three main questions facing the field. First, how has technology affected IO psychological theory and practice to date? Second, given the current trends in both research and practice, could IO psychological theories be rendered obsolete? Third, what are the highest priorities for both research and practice to ensure IO psychology remains appropriately engaged with technology moving forward?


‘In seeking out a competitive advantage, today's business leaders often invest heavily in technological products that promise to manage, transform, and ideally improve organizational functions (e.g. staffing, training, and teamwork) and/or outcomes (e.g. satisfaction, turnover, and performance). This book offers what is needed to achieve these goals: not only an understanding of technology at work, but - critically - the psychology of employee behavior that is influenced by this technology. It features organizational researchers whose expert advice on technology and employee behavior is based on extensive scientific, and practical, knowledge and ethical sensibilities honed through experience. The authors also consider the important ways in which technology-driven research methods enhance their own organizational research and connection to other work-relevant research disciplines. It is an essential resource for anyone interested in understanding the future of work and the workplace.'

‘Wow. This Handbook is a necessary read for anyone applying or studying any topic in IO psychology, either through research or practice. Whether you are late to the game or leading the charge, you'll learn new concepts and tools that change how you look at the world of work and how you can better impact that world through your research and practice.'

Kurt Kraiger - University of Memphis

‘Richard N. Landers has brought together a team of stellar academics and business leaders to confront the pressing issues resulting from combining humans and technology in today's organizations. This volume is a must read for those who seek to gain an in-depth understanding of the ways in which individuals and technology combine to form synergistic outcomes necessary to propel today's workers into the organizations of tomorrow.'

Michael Coovert - University of South Florida
