Psychologists from each SFU branch will present their fields of work and provide an insight into their everyday work. There will be first-hand information as well as space for exchange and questions. Language of presentation will be English.

Nowadays, companies are facing greater challenges than ever before. The world of work is in a constant state of flux, characterized by long-term and profound changes in society, the economy and technology. Digitization, increasing competition from often small, more flexible start-ups, increasing complexity and the New Way of Work are changing the long-established image of the world of work and placing new demands on employees and employers.

  • What can psychologists contribute to this change?
  • Why is knowledge from clinical and health psychology helpful?
  • What does the daily work of a people and change manager in a large Austrian company look like?
  • What personal interests and skills should you bring to the job?

In »Professional Fields & Practice of Psychology« we will find answers to these questions. The lecture will give an insight into how enriching it can be not to follow the intention of a stringent CV, but to rely on the diversity of experiences in different psychological fields and positions. As a people and change manager as well as an enterprise agile coach you will benefit from these experiences and as a psychologist you are more than qualified to accompany companies and employees on this exciting journey.
