(Lincoln, Neb.) Four Talent Plus (R) associates have been published in the Cambridge Handbook of Technology and Employee Behavior.

Dr. Brett M. Wells, Chief Research Officer, led research and data experts at Talent Plus in writing a chapter in the publication. Team members include: Dr. Karl Giuseffi, Fran Westfall and Dr. Ben Sievert. The team represents a collaboration from members of both the research and technology teams at Talent Plus.

According to the publisher's website, this handbook brings "experts from across all industrial-organizational (IO) psychology to describe how increasingly rapid technological change has affected the field."

The handbook looks to answer three questions: how has technology affected IO psychological theory and practice; could IO psychological theories be rendered obsolete; and third, how do research and practice ensure IO psychology remains relevant and engaged with technology moving forward.

Chapter 30, entitled "Sensemaking and Storytelling through Data Visualization," is about deconstructing big data for effective, clear storytelling. Says Dr. Wells, "Our team of scientists and technologists are passionate about turning information overload into actionable insights. For the past few years, and with many technological advances in the workplace, our team has honed its craft of telling more impactful stories using data visualization."

The cooperation between teams was crucial to the writing efforts. "Working as an internal 'team of teams' in the trenches with data, it was precious time for us to reflect on the lessons learned and best practices to date, and to share these insights with the world," concludes Dr. Wells.
