Abstract

In the 1950s, General Electric developed a personnel research department. A number of talented psychologists worked here and generated influential theories and methods that helped spur the growth of I-O psychology. The personnel research group at GE was trained to be enterprising when generating ideas and empowered to put these ideas to action in many of the General Electric businesses.
