2020. Vol. 10. No. 1. P. 208–227 [issue contents]
The article analyzes the current state, trends and prospects of the development of business psychology based on the results of the Sixth international scientific-practical conference «Business Psychology: Theory and Practice» (HSE, Moscow, Russia), which was held at the HSE from November 29 to December 1, 2019 of the year. The conference was prepared and held on the initiative of the master’s program “Psychology in Business” of the Department of Psychology of the Higher School of Economics in collaboration with the Association of Business Psychologists of Russia. The metalogical basis of the conference is business psychology — an interdisciplinary area of applied psychology that was created in the UK and has been actively developed at the Higher School of Economics in recent years. Presented reports, their discussion, master classes showed a growing interest of researchers and practitioners in research activities in the field of business psychology. The conference showed that today the psychology of business is that area of applied science, which unites at the interdisciplinary level specialists of various fields who strive for a common goal — to make business more efficient and at the same time more “human”, contributing to the increase of subjective well-being all people included in it, their personal and professional development. The reports and workshops presented many interesting ideas and technologies for the psychological support of business at all levels: personal, organizational, environmental. Among the trends in the development of business psychology, there is a growing interest on the part of psychologists and practitioners in business psychological models and technologies for working with the individual, organization, and external business environment. A growing trend is growing interest in the theory and practice of business psychology from business representatives, including company executives. The main strengths of business psychologists become more understandable both to researchers and practitioners: an interdisciplinary approach, professionalism and adaptability, efficiency in communications, systematic problem solving, and focus on development. The tendency towards the growth of requirements to the personal and professional level of a business psychologist as a professional, who works for the development of a leader, staff, and organization, is consistently manifested. The main prospects for the development of business psychology: the inclusion in the structure of business psychology of new subject areas of research and practice; the emergence of new tracks in the structure of training of business psychologists; the introduction of business psychology in various spheres of human activity; strengthening the influence of business psychology on the development of psychological assistance methods.
