Welcome to the Alliance for Organizational Psychology, a federation of Work, Industrial, and Organizational Psychology societies from around the world.  

The Alliance has been established by the 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). For members-only information, log in with your UserName and Password.  If you encounter difficulty, contact Milt Hakel, IT Coordinator, at mhakel@bgsu.edu.

Bonnie Cheng has been elected to serve as the Communications Officer for the Alliance, and has already begun her service in that role to help upgrade the Alliance website during the coming months.  New officers will begin their terms during the International Congress of Applied Psychology in Montreal, June 26-30.  The website re-development will feature current content and enhanced navigation, security, and appearance.  Contact Bonnie at bonnie.cheng@polyu.edu.hk.

Alliance Officers

Franco Fraccaroli, Rosalind Searle, and Donald Truxillo are the new Officers of the Alliance for Organizational Psychology, Inc.  They have assumed office as President, Secretary-General, and Treasurer respectively, the outcome of a recent election.  Each will serve until the 2018 International Congress of Applied Psychology, to be held in Montreal, Canada.

Franco Fraccaroli is Professor of Work and Organizational Psychology at the University of Trento in Italy.  Since 2010 he also serves as Dean of the Faculty of Cognitive Science. He was the President of the European Association of Work and Organizational Psychology (2007-2009), and was a signer of the Memorandum of Agreement that led to the creation of the Alliance.  Contact him at  Franco.Fraccaroli@unitn.it.

Rosalind Searle is Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Psychology, and co-founder and head of trust research of the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations at Coventry University in England.  She has served the Alliance as a member of its Program Committee for three years.  Contact her at ab2919@coventry.ac.uk.

Donald Truxillo is Professor of Industrial-Organizational Psychology at Portland State University, Portland, Oregon, United States.   He chaired the International Affairs Committee for SIOP, and was the first Chair of the Alliance's Program Committee.  Contact him at truxild@pdx.edu.

Fraccaroli, Searle, and Truxillo now serve as global proponents of organizational psychology, rather than as representatives from the Alliance's constituent associations.  They lead the Alliance's Board of Delegates, whose current members are: 'Gudela Grote' <ggrote@ethz.ch>; 'Gary Latham' <Latham@Rotman.Utoronto.Ca>; 'Jose M Cortina' <jcortina@gmu.edu>;  'Denisi, Angelo S' <adenisi@tulane.edu>;  'Barbara Kożusznik' <barbara.kozusznik@us.edu.pl>; Vicente Martinez-Tur, 'Vicente.Martinez-Tur@uv.es'; 'Jeff McHenry' <jeff.mchenry@rainierleadership.com>; 'Frederik Anseel' <Frederik.Anseel@UGent.be>; and one more Delegate from EAWOP, to be appointed.

In 2017 the Canadian Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (CSIOP) formally joined the Alliance for Organizational Psychology (AOP) under the leadership of its then current Chair and now CSIOP delegate to the Alliance, Lynda Zugec (lynda.zugec@theworkforceconsultants.com).

Fostering Ethical, Relevant and Rigorous Research

The Alliance for Organizational Psychology (AOP) held its first Small Group Meeting in February 2016 in Zurich, Switzerland. The Small Group Meeting was led by Gudela Grote and Jose Cortina and focused on the systemic concerns and issues within the current publication process and related academic structures that are utilized to support such processes. Entitled "Fostering Ethical, Rigorous and Relevant Research: The Contribution of Work and Organizational Psychology", the meeting included a lively debate over a 1.5 day period and discussed tensions between (un)ethical scientific conduct and the need for increased rigour and relevance. This resulted in a memorandum of understanding.  You may read it here - click this link.
