Canadian Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology Joins the Alliance for Organizational Psychology!


by SIOP Administrative Office

The Canadian Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (CSIOP) has formally joined the Alliance for Organizational Psychology (AOP) under SIOP member, current CSIOP Chair, and CSIOP delegate to the Alliance, Lynda Zugec. The Alliance, established in 2009 by the Work and Organizational Psychology Division of the International Association for Applied Psychology (Division 1), the European Association for Work and Organizational Psychology (EAWOP), and the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) was initiated by then SIOP President, past CSIOP Chair, and current President of IAAP (Division 1), Gary Latham.

Franco Fraccaroli, Rosalind Searle, and Donald Truxillo are the current Officers, serving as President, Secretary-General, and Treasurer respectively. Each serve until the 2018 International Congress of Applied Psychology (ICAP), to be held in Montreal, Canada.

The aim of the Alliance is to form an international alliance that would increase the visibility of I-O psychology in the public and private sectors, and be mutually beneficial to each society.

The Alliance does not seek to duplicate functions that are already done by other existing I-O psychology Associations, but instead intends to enhance, extend and facilitate exchanges among Associations and their members.

The specific purposes of the Alliance are as follows:

  1. Influence policies and practices related to the quality of work life and the effectiveness of individuals and organizations,
  2. Advocate internationally for the science and practice of organizational, industrial and work psychology,
  3. Enhance communication and collaboration among its member societies and the individuals who are members of these societies, and
  4. To do any and all acts and things necessary and expedient to accomplish any of the foregoing.
