The world, and specifically the workplace, revolves around people. This short course in Organisational Psychology is for anyone with an interest in how people work, coupled with a desire to improve organisations and the working lives of the employees who inhabit them.

This interactive course examines the role that psychology plays in today’s workplace. Designed to provide insights into the psychology of group behaviour and decision-making, selection and assessment, employee well-being and diversity and inclusion, the course develops your understanding of the contextual forces within organisations and provides tools to understand human behaviour in the 21st-century workplace and beyond.

The four sessions cover:

  • Group decision- making
  • Selection and Assessment
  • Employee Health and Well-being
  • Equality and Diversity

Each two-hour session will include a lecture providing the critical organisational and psychological background; a group or individual exercise; and a facilitated Q&A session.

The focus will be on providing practical insights, tools and tips you can apply in the workplace – or in everyday life.
