The Next Decade: Will Hutton Predicts Workload for Occupational Psychologists

Will Hutton addresses demands upon the workforce in the recession in the UK, the evolution of the economy and the likely demands upon the workforce that will result in challenges and opportunities for the occupational psychology profession, at the annual Division of Occupational Conference, part of the British Psychological Society. Will Hutton predicts that Occupational Psychologists will get a lot of work with organisations trying to make sense of what business purpose and shared value means for individuals. He thinks the next decade for occupational psychology is potentially going to be a rich one for occupational psychology. What will matter is growing and holding the organisation together, around a shared vision, and shared purposes. Organisations that want to build powerful trust relationships between their people must have a commitment to fairness. Firms want to keep their special skills and keep their teams together; they do not want to break their trust by sacking people and want to maintain credit for years ahead. This suggests plenty of opportunity and challenges ahead. Will is Executive Vice Chair of the Work Foundation, Professorial Fellow at the London School of Economics, Observer Columnist and Author.
