Occ Digest

The British Psychological Society's Occupational Digest reported on psychology in the workplace from 2011-2014.

The BPS Occupational Digest, edited by Dr Alex Fradera, was funded by the Division of Occupational Psychology and aimed to reach occupational psychology practitioners together with a wider audience who care about putting psychology to work, including HR professionals, managers, and anyone with an interest in the field. In early 2014 we took the decision that the future for the Research Digest lay in expansion and development of our existing platform, rather than putting resources into developing smaller, 'splinter' Digests.

Consequently, from June 2014 Dr Alex Fradera will become a Lead Writer on the Research Digest. He will still have a primary focus on occupational issues, but will also cover other material, all of which will now reach a larger audience.

The existing blog will remain as an archive.

About Dr Alex Fradera
