The I/O psychology process is effective in predicting future behavior by employees and can assist the company and selecting employees that are a fit for the organization's culture as well as assist in placing these employees in the appropriate positions that are in alignment with the employee's personality and capabilities. The I/O psychologist can provide insight on how to motivate employees and ensure that employees are satisfied with their employment through the use of assessments, which are capable of accurately measuring the employee's ability to competently conduct their job duties.
