The Society for Industrial-Organizational Psychologists (SIOP) held its 2023 SIOP Annual Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, April 19 – 23. The conference was attended by over 5,000 participants/psychologists.

Founder and CEO of E.A.S.I-Consult, Dr. David Smith, was an invited speaker to participate in a panel of his co-authors for the upcoming SIOP and Oxford University Press sponsored “Handbook on I-O Practices: Insights from Seasoned Practicioners.”

Two groundbreaking and recurring topics throughout the conference included the challenges of I-O psychologists to ensure artificial intelligence (AI) is not abused in the hiring of minority and disabled applicants and the overuse of intelligence/cognitive ability testing for hiring and promotions. As a result, professionally developed structured interviews have been identified as the best predictor of job performance!
