Larry Williams inducted as fellow in the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology

The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology recently named Larry Williams a fellow in the organization. Williams is a professor of management and director of the Center for Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA) at WSU’s School of Business Administration.

Fellows are distinguished industrial and organizational (I-O) psychologists who have made an unusual and outstanding contribution to the field. Williams was inducted for bringing structural equation techniques to the I-O field and for continuing to address issues like method variance, model fit and how structural equation modeling can better test theories of employee work adjustment and performance. Williams was also recognized as a highly cited research methodologist with over 3,000 citations. Two of his papers rank in the top six most cited articles in the Journal of Management’s 30-year history.

The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology is the premier membership organization for those practicing and teaching industrial and organizational psychology. I-O psychology is the scientific study of the workplace. It examines how methods of psychology are applied to issues of critical relevance to business, including talent management, coaching, assessment, selection, training, organizational development, performance and work-life balance.
