Industrial psychology is the study of human behavior in the business, industrial, and military setting and the application of psychological principles, knowledge, and theory in these settings. There are at least six activities of the foreman in which knowledge of industrial psychology can be helpful. These are (1) selection of employees, (2) induction, or placing of employees on the job, (3) training of employees, (4) maintaining the morale of employees, (5) motivating employees, and (6) supervising employees at work. Proper handling of each is essential to successful foremanship.
