I-O Psychologists engage in the science of work with the goal of improving the performance of both employees and their employing organizations. However, we cannot—and do not—do this work alone. Others, including human factors scientists, share and contribute to these goals in important ways. This presentation will provide an overview of the individual and collective contributions of both disciplines and will highlight examples of projects where both I-O and HF expertise were needed. Particular attention will be paid to differences in how theses disciplines are viewed by academia, by funding clients, and by the researchers themselves. In many situations, we can create a better product together than either one of us could alone.
