Society for Industrial and Organisational Psychology of South Africa

SIOPSA 26th ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Conference Date:

WELCOME TO THE ANNUAL SIOPSA CONFERENCE

The world of work is changing rapidly due to factors such as artificial intelligence, hybrid work arrangements, and global crises like the COVID-19 pandemic.  These changes can impact mental health, especially in South Africa where workplace stress is widespread. Industrial and Organisational Psychologists (IOPs) are essential in designing interventions prioritising well-being and productivity.

The SIOPSA 2024 Annual Conference aims to bring together experts to devise effective strategies to ensure psychological well-being and productivity in the workplace.  The three-day conference will address the following themes: “context,” “content,” and “conduct.”

Context: The focus here will emphasise the significance of context in comprehending workplace mental health. To provide a comprehensive overview, we will employ a scoreboard metaphor. This theme will explore the underlying reasons for mental health issues in the workplace, the scope of the mental health crisis, and dispelling prevalent myths. Additionally, we will discuss current trends and effective strategies for managing mental health in the workplace.

Content: Focus is on multiple touchpoints, coping mechanisms, and collaborative solutions involved in workplace mental health and well-being, emphasising that it is not an isolated issue.

Conduct: Focuses on implementing a forward-thinking approach to addressing mental health issues in the workplace, exploring various methods to promote sustainable development in mental health.
