12th Aotearoa New Zealand Organisational Psychology and Organisational Behaviour Conference

Friday 24th November 2023, University of Auckland

This conference aimed to bring together organisational psychology and organisational behaviour researchers and practitioners to discuss their research. Specifically, the goals were to understand each other’s research and foster a stronger community among researchers and practitioners in organisational psychology and organisational behaviour.

The 12th ANZOPOB conference was a success, boasting over 70 attendees and 30 presenters. The speakers at this conference included academic staff and postgraduate students from universities across the country, as well as applied practitioners sharing their work and experiences. A diverse range of topics across the occupational and organisational psychology field were discussed: from exploring occupational stressors and coping methods, to research on leadership and work design, to larger conversations about how to connect academia and practise.
