Center for Organizational Research

The Center for Organizational Research (COR) is a consulting center operating within the Psychology Department at The University of Akron. The purpose of COR is to provide organizations with evidence-based solutions to the issues that confront people in work environments, with areas of specialization including human resource management, organizational development, and survey work. COR is able to offer a tailored approach to the client‘s needs because of its smaller client base and research orientation. Our consulting services are delivered by teams of graduate students and I/O faculty members. Collaboration with faculty gives COR a unique strength, as the I/O Psychology Department at The University of Akron consistently ranks as one of the top ten programs in the nation. As such, COR is in an excellent position to provide top quality consultation and research-based interventions to the business community. Some of our services offered include: adverse impact analysis, leadership training and development, performance management, customized research studies, employee attitude surveys, training development and evaluation, job analysis, and item and test writing and development.
