WHAT WE DO
The Work Science Center promotes the psychological study of people and work in the 21st century. The Center leverages knowledge from psychological sciences and allied disciplines to:
1. Promote improved worker health, development, and well-being
2. Increase organizational value through improved job quality and work-life
3. Inform public policy makers to improve lives at work and beyond.
WHY THIS CENTER
The Work Science Center leverages the expertise and resources of GT School of Psychology faculty (see figure below), and colleagues around the world to advance psychological science and its application to the workforce, workworld, and human talent management. Shifting employment options, new work systems, and workforce changes are transforming how people experience work and career paths. The Work Science Center focuses on the psychology of individual-context interactions that underlie working experiences, career biographies, employability, behavior, health, and well-being.
HOW WE WORK
We promote progress in basic and translational research on Work Science Center topics through mini-conferences, workshops, our Thinking Forward paper series, news and event announcements, and regular newsletters.
