A collaboration between the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP)
To further the use and understanding of evidence-based HR practices, SHRM and SIOP have partnered to create a series of resources for HR practitioners. These resources, available to SHRM and SIOP members and affiliates, are specifically intended to infuse the science of Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology and other HR disciplines into management practices for daily use in the workplace.
SHRM-SIOP White Paper Series
The SHRM-SIOP white paper series provides practitioner oriented reviews of evidence-based HR practices. These papers, written by leading researchers and practitioners in the field of I-O psychology and HR, make the science of evidence-based HR practices accessible to SHRM members and affiliates.
Each collaborative article will be posted to this page and can also be viewed on SIOP's website here. For more information regarding the SIOP-SHRM Science of HR Series, please contact Ashley Miller (email@example.com) or David Dubin (David@psycharts.com).
NEW Understanding Nonstandard Work Arrangements
This paper provides a review on nonstandard work arrangements. Nonstandard workers tend to be defined as those who are associated with organizations for a limited duration of time (e.g., temporary workers), work at a distance from the organization (e.g., remote workers) or are administratively distant from the organization (e.g., third-party contract workers). The results of this review answers four key questions: (1) what are nonstandard work arrangements and how prevalent are they; (2) why do organizations have these arrangements; (3) what challenges do organizations that adopt these work arrangements face; and (4) how can organizations deal with these challenges?
