Employment Type

: Full-Time


: Human Resources

This application is for the 2020 I/O Psychology Business Challenge. Those who are selected for this week-long business challenge will also be considered for a 2021 I/O Psychology Internship.

Procter & Gamble (P&G) would like to invite current and recently graduated Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology Ph.D. students to participate in our upcoming I/O Business Challenge. Our purpose is to bring together a team of students from I/O Psychology Ph.D. programs across the U.S. to apply your I/O expertise and external perspectives to solve a business challenge at P&G.
What would I do?
Think of it like a case study, but the problem is real, and strong solutions will be implemented. P&G's I/O group and relevant stakeholders will brief the I/O Business Challenge team on the first day. As a team, you will work together throughout the week to investigate the problem and recommend a solution. On the last day, you will present your solution to senior leadership and other stakeholders.
What type of problems could I solve?
Your project could involve any area that P&G's I/O group faces, such as:
  • Employee Selection, Testing/Assessments
  • Workforce/People Analytics & Operations
  • Engagement Survey, Organization Sensing, Employee Experience
  • Diversity & Inclusion
  • Leadership Development and Succession Planning
  • Performance Management and Rewards/Compensation
  • Learning & Development/Training
  • Strategy, Organizational Culture, and Change Management
Why Ph.D. students?
  1. To keep P&G solutions connected to the cutting edge of I/O science and external perspective.
  2. To scout top I/O talent to fill upcoming internship and full-time positions within P&G's Global Talent team. Students will have the opportunity to interview while on site.
  3. To give students a realistic job preview of I/O work at P&G and expose them to the challenges the Talent team tackles.
What are the logistics?
Date: September 28 - October 2, 2020
Location: P&G Corporate Headquarters - Cincinnati, OH
Schedule: You will be sent a schedule ahead of the trip, which includes your hotel, meetings, dinners, and even some fun activities to get to know your team and P&G's I/O Psychologists.
Expenses: P&G will pay for all seminar expenses, including transportation, accommodation, meals, and activities
