Work and Organizational Psychology
At the Division of Work and Organisational Psychology, education and research are conducted in close collaboration with wider society and adjacent academic disciplines. The many and close connections with wider society are reflected in the division’s education, research and practice.
Psychosocial and organisational conditions play an essential role for population health and the population’s capacity to work. Thus, work and organisational psychology is an area of expertise with great social relevance. Research in this area can contribute new knowledge to the benefit of private companies, public administration, occupational health services, psychologists and many other actors. Research questions may relate to preventing or managing work-related poor health, poor job satisfaction and poor capacity to work, or how to best stimulate a positive organisational climate, commitment and productivity at work.
