Introducing the BPS Occupational Digest

This is a place for news, reviews and reports on how psychology matters in the workplace. It's intended for HR professionals, occupational psychologists, managers, consultants, students or anyone who is curious about how people operate at work and ideas on how to improve that.

This blog is produced by the British Psychological Society to promote psychology and make it more accessible. It builds on the successes of its inspiration the BPS Research Digest and magazine The Psychologist. The Occupational Digest is funded by the Division of Occupational Psychology, the part of the Society that looks after that profession in the UK.

We have a lot of ideas on how to make this site valuable, accessible, and distinctive. Our initial priority will be summary reports of research findings, following the format that made the Research Digest such a success. Over the coming months, we will be looking to you to help us understand what is most useful - so we can do more of it! One way to do this is to use the comments function for this, or any post: acess this by clicking where it says 0 comments (or 1, or 14) at the bottom of the post. Alternatively you may contact me directly by email on alex [dot] fradera [at] gmail [dot] com.

I'm your editor, Alex Fradera, and I look forward to the conversation we're about to start.
