Organizational psychologists’ impact on the workplace extends much further than ensuring all employees are happy and content —they can help establish a company’s culture.
The work that an organizational psychologist does can not only drive workers’ productivity but also create a place where employees thrive professionally and as a team. Johnson & Wales instructor John Valaro Ph.D., SPHR, GPHR, said that students in the program will be “informed with research primarily in psychology to be able to make research decisions at the individual, group, or macro-organizational level.”
Now is the time to enter this rapidly growing field: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, organizational psychologists can expect to see an increase in job demand of up to 14% by the year 2028, a percentage much higher than the current national job growth expectations.
