10th Industrial and Organisational Psychology Conference

Graham Marshall - Wednesday, June 26, 2013

The Australian Psychological Society (APS) College of Organisational Psychologists is hosting the 10th Industrial and Organisational Psychology (IOP) Conference.

The 2013 Conference has the theme: Crossing Boarders: Exploring the contribution of psychology to organisations in a global economy


The psychology of work will be under examination at IOP where leading international and Australian experts from organisational psychology will provide insights into workplace issues such as building high performance cultures, coping with work-life conflict, job stress prevention, on-boarding and designing work spaces for employee health.

Taking place between Wednesday 3rd July to Saturday 6 July 2013 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, Perth, Western Australia

Internationally renowned presenters will deliver global perspectives on topics, including:


Professor Talya Bauer, Cameron Professor of Management, Portland State University, USA

The faster new employees feel welcome and prepared for their jobs, the faster they will be able to successfully contribute to their organisation’s mission. 

Formal ‘on-boarding’ has been shown to increase performance, job satisfaction and commitment, lower stress and enhance career effectiveness.

Prof Bauer, who has implemented on-boarding at Google, Microsoft and Huntington Bank, will discuss research-based on-boarding best practice.

Designing work and work spaces for employee health

Dr Cristina Banks, President, Lamorinda Consulting and University of California, Berkley, USA.

Dr Banks and colleagues at Berkley have established a national depository for cutting edge research on factors that have a proven impact on employee health and wellbeing.  She will share learnings from innovative research across several disciplines – psychology, business, public policy, public health, environment design, ergonomics, biology and medicine, which she will use to begin building the template of the healthy workplace.

Evidence-based approaches to leadership development:

Dr Matt Barney, Director Infosys Leadership Institute, India.

It is regrettably rare that science about leaders and leadership is used in organisations.

Dr Barney will talk about evidence-based approaches to leadership development and present the Cue See leadership model that combines theory from psychology, strategy, engineering, marketing and finance.

Money not the only factor keeping fly-in fly-out workers in the job
‘Fly-in fly-out’ (FIFO) workers adopt one of three distinct identities to cope with their working arrangements: work-family balanced, dominant career focussed and FIFO. 

Intention of workers to stay in the job can be predicted by identity type.
