A Reflection on SIOP 2024

Society for Industrial and Organisational Psychology of South Africa
Date: 29 April 2024


by Dr Ruwayne Kock, SIOPSA President 2023/24

After attending the recent SIOP 2024 Conference in Chicago, I’m excited about the significant advances that our field is making. The conference reinforced the crucial role of I/O Psychology in enhancing workplace and community well-being through innovative practices. 

SIOP 2024 Highlights 

My  main takeaways were:

Scientist-Practitioner Role – There was a strong emphasis on the dual role of I/O Psychologists as both scientists and practitioners. 

DEIA and Measurement – The conference featured engaging discussions on measuring and integrating DEIA effectively within organisations. 

AI in People Management – A key focus was AI’s role in transforming various phases of the talent management lifecycle, from acquisition to development. 

Future of Flexible Work – Discussions included strategies for implementing flexible work arrangements in non-white-collar roles to enhance inclusivity. 

Advancements in People Development – The conference highlighted innovative team-based and coaching approaches for professional development. 

Mental Health and Wellbeing at Work – Innovative design thinking strategies were discussed to promote mental health and well-being. 

Global Shared I/O Psychology Identity – A concerted effort was made to promote a unified I/O Psychology identity across the globe.

These insights from I/O Psychology directly impact our mental health, well-being, and productivity. They are inspiring and pivotal as we integrate them into our practices to promote personal and organisational growth. 

Looking Ahead: 26th Annual SIOPSA 2024 Conference 16-19 July 2024
