Work and family from an industrial/organizational psychology perspective
Date of Original Version
Industrial/organizational (IIO) psychologists study human attitudes and behavior in the workplace. Their goals are to understand and measure human behavior to improve employees’ satisfaction and job performance, enhance employers’ ability to select and promote the best people, and generally make the workplace better for employees (www.siop.org). Although 1/0 psychologists focus on the interrelatedness of the individual, the group, and the organization, it has only been in the last 20 years or so that they have considered the relationship between work and family. Fortunately, the field has advanced tremendously since then and has added substantially to the work-family literature.
