Top 10 Workplace Trends: Data Is Still Big, Greater Emphasis on Employees’ Needs [Photo Gallery]

Industrial-organizational (I-O) psychologists study workplace issues of critical relevance to business, including talent management, coaching, assessment, selection, training, organizational development, performance and work–life balance. What workplace needs are I-O psychologists predicting businesses will want to address in 2017?

To create this list, SIOP asked its members for their predictions, compiled those predictions into a list of possible trends, and surveyed members to identify which were the top 10 that organizations are likely to see emerge or continue to grow in 2017.

This year’s trend list was compiled by SIOP Communications Department and the Media Subcommittee of SIOP’s Visibility Committee based on two online surveys sent to approximately 8,000 SIOP members October through December of 2016. Read last year’s list here. The 2015 and 2014 lists are also available on the SIOP web site.  

More than 800 members responded, and these are the trends they identified.
