Most I/O folks do not hold a license to practice. They consult with businesses on how to make employees more productive, how to select the best person for the job, and how to organize a department to be more efficient. Sometimes, they branch out to wellbeing issues, but they do not treat the clinical issues of employees. Human Resources departments hire people, deal with problems in the workplace, and work with federal and state laws affecting workers. They may also branch out into wellbeing issues, but, again, do not typically treat the clinical issues of employees.
