EMPLOYEE SELECTION AND TRAINING 2
Employee Selection and Training
The field of industrial organizational (I/O) psychology has been studied since the early
years. I/O psychology has developed many different inventions in the twentieth century, with
roots in the late 1800s and the early 1900s (Spector, 2008). Educational Organization such as
public schools, police officers and large department store management are the three real-world
examples in which the team will write about. The team will discuss how these organizations use
I/O psychology to select and train employees. Also the team will discuss the different methods
to measure the level of success and each training program used in I/O psychology. Finally the
team will discuss the legal and or ethical concerns that may arise in the implementation of each
training program.
Educational Organizations
Today's public school systems use I/O psychology in many areas. I/O psychology is used
to improve the performance and well-being of not only its employees but also that of the
students. An I/O psychologist can identify behaviors and attitudes and can help to improve many
situations. This can be accomplished through proper hiring practices, correct training programs,
and the use of feedback (Association, 1971-2010).
The specific characteristics and legalities of hiring a teacher change with each class as
well as state to state. However, there are those traits and characteristics that remain the same. In
an interview with Samantha Freimund, Principal, Horace Mann High School North Fond du Lac,
Wisconsin, many of these traits and characteristics became clearer. When hiring any teacher her
committee looks for several things, such as a properly filled out application, and the committee
uses an outside security firm to run a background check and a reference check. Principal
Freimund stated that proper licensure is a must (2010).
