OPP presents six papers at the BPS Division of Occupational Psychology Conference

OPP have had six papers accepted for this week's BPS Division of Occupational Psychology Conference taking place in Chester

The topics, which OPP will present to members of the British Psychological Society, range from the impact of social media on recruitment to a look at personality profiles of senior executives. The research was conducted last year and analysed a nationally representative sample of over 1000 people of working age in the UK and Ireland.

Rob Bailey, Managing Consultant, commented, "We are delighted to have had this number of papers accepted for the BPS DOP 2012 conference. The research and analysis we've carried out this year around our 16PF questionnaire reveals that a remarkable variety of insight can be gleaned from a single instrument: from the fit between people and their jobs to the application of personality in coaching, understanding use of social networking, the personality characteristics of senior executives, and the stability of personality over time. Our studies confirm OPP's expertise in helping clients to apply knowledge of personality in the workplace to deliver positive impact."

The 2012 BPS DOP Conference includes keynote speakers who will discuss challenges at the very forefront of psychological research and their application in the workplace, with topics including goal setting, motivation, performance appraisal and training; positive psychological capital, behaviour modification and authentic leadership. The conference programme features a mix of sessions and will focus on core areas within psychology: Performance; Engagement; Health & Well-being; and Leadership.
