RCIO 2014: Perspectives on Personality
October 24-25, 2014
The 2014 RCIO conference was focused on current and projected future trends in the research and application around personality in employees. Participants from 10 universities and 3 non-academic organizations came together in Chattanooga for this excellent event. Conference presentations (there were 8 to choose from) covered a wide range of topics related to the theme and to the practice of Industrial and Organizational psychology more generally. Another highlight was the strong set of 31 posters presented by student researchers and their collaborators/advisors. The keynote presentation was delivered by Dr. L. A.
