Research and statistics are incredibly important for organizational psychology, especially in the scientist-practitioner perspective. It is known that the use of all evidence-based practices is a result of the integrity of using the right techniques in psychology, and collecting data that can provide you with real-life examples of how things really work. Analyzing these research and statistics in a meaningful way is incredibly important in terms of organizational psychology, so that psychologists can find out precisely what things happen in real life. Interventions on leadership, on job performance, the stress of employees and even selection techniques are based on the reliability of research and statistics in an organization. They are also based on the validity of measurements as constructs.

Organizational psychology is focused particularly on group-type settings, usually in offices and workplaces. This kind of psychology uses theories and research, as well as intervention and communication strategies, and then applies these to the groups in work and non-work settings. People within this field focus on helping people understand that their interactions with one another are important. By doing this, people can begin to work better together and effectively come up with solutions to problems.

An organizational psychologist works with people from lower-ranked employees, to middle management, and to the top leadership teams. These kinds of professionals will want to make sure that the workplace and all of the employees are as productive as possible. This means watching how people are able to talk and communicate in general with each other, and how healthy their mind and bodies are when they are in the workplace.

Without research and statistics, an organizational psychologist will not be able to make accurate assumptions about how groups work, and what they should do in different circumstances.

Research and Stats is at the heart of I/O psychology in the scientist-practitioner perspective. The use of evidence-based practices lies in the integrity of using correctly the techniques to systematically collect data, and analysing them in a meaningful way. Interventions on leadership, job performance, employee stress, and selection techniques are all based on the reliability and validity of measurements as constructs.
