Do I/O psychologists add more value as internals or externals?
Do industrial and organisational psychologists add more or less value as internals or externals?
Our purpose as Industrial and Organisational Psychologists may be shared but our impact is varied. Since our professional inception, we have as IO Psychologists aspired to make the greatest impact to individuals, teams and organisations as a whole. As we’ve strived for positive impact, an eternal and incessant question is whether we are best positioned to add value by working within the organisations we serve, or from outside? As an internal, is our immersion a strategic advantage or a professional compromise? As an external, is our independence a lift to our credibility or a drag on our capacity to sustain meaningful change?
Jon Wilson and Barry Bloch had an exciting, energetic and challenging debate on this topic. With over 50 years of combined professional practice these two “old hands” of IO Psychology will go head to head debating this fundamental topic, sharing their best insights, experiences and learnings whilst also inviting participants to play an active and enjoyable role in seeking answers to this inimitable professional dilemma.
