Description: Economic and social context that justifies the programme: There is a more than a century tradition in research in Psychology of Work, Organisations and Human Resources which has produced a wide variety of theoretical models, empirical evidence, tools and methodologies that have consolidated the professional practice not only of professionals in Psychology of Work and Organisations, but also of those who have been devoted to the management and development of Human Resources. The technological instruments developed through research are extraordinary (methodologies and instruments for job analysis, personnel selection, pay and incentive design, management and leadership, organizational change management, etc.). However, the profound changes in the world of work, enterprise and organizations, inter-organizational relationships, and labour market lead to a review, restatements or a profound change of these technologies, developing new methodologies to intensify the research required for its evolution. Due to the urgency and necessity of today, research in Psychology of Human Resources, must create and provide new knowledge, methodologies and technologies to face new social challenges and demands.
