RCIO: Putting Science to Work
A conference series designed to engage and empower current and future HR and talent-related professionals by bridging current science and best practices for talent and organization management.
2023 Theme: Attracting talent in a challenging labor market
October 20 and 21, 2023
The UTC Master's of Science program in Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology invites you to participate in the 19th Annual River Cities I-O (RCIO) Psychology Conference. We look forward to welcoming you to this next installment of our long-running conference series that promises to be engaging, relevant, and memorable. This year we will be exploring the many different challenges associated with attracting talent in our current labor market, economy, and broader society. As always, we will be exploring many aspects of this thematic domain.
New for RCIO 2023 is the opportunity for SHRM members to earn up to 8 PDC for participating in the full conference day on October 21. Details will be provided at the conference for HR and talent management professions who are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, which is made possible through a partnership between the UTC I-O psychology program and Peak Performance consulting (https://www.peakperformanceinc.com/), a SHRM recertification provider.
The annual RCIO conference is a highly professional, yet student- and practitioner-friendly event that provides a positive, encouraging, and up-to-date educational experience. Our objective is to make the RCIO Conference Series the most rewarding mini-conference experience you can have each year.
