This article reports on research programs conducted by the National Institute of Industrial Psychology, London, England. The Institute is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1921 with the goal of developing the field of occupational psychology in Great Britain. It has received recognition as a research association from the Department of Trade and Industry. The membership of organizations and individuals focus on research, teaching, and advisory work. The research institute's goal is to bridge the gap between theory and practice, so it offers training courses, as well as a journal, research reports and bulletins. The Institute currently has twenty-three research projects in progress which relate to industrial relations, including vocational guidance and career development, personnel selection and appraisal, and industrial safety.
