Abstract

Industrial Psychology, as a relatively new but fast-growing science is evaluated on the basis of six criteria for a profession. Results in this regard indicate that for a number of years the discipline has been in the process of evolving into a full-fledged profession and that this process has made advancement along the professional continuum. Further investigations regarding the professional training, the statutory organising of Industrial Psychology as well as a professional code and association for Industrial Psychology are needed in order to fully consolidate the professional status of the discipline.

Opsomming
Bedryfsielkunde, as relatief jong maar snelgroeiende wetenskap, word aan die hand van ses kriteria vir 'n professie evalueer. Resultate in hierdie verband dui in die algemeen daarop dat die vakgebied alreeds vir 'n aantal jare in 'n oorgangsfase tot ‘n volwaardige professie is en dat daar in hierdie proses reeds ver op die professionele kontinuum gevorder is. Verdere onder-soeke ten opsigte van professionele opleiding, die statutêre organisering van Bedryfsielkunde asook 'n professionele kode en vereniging vir die Bedryfsielkunde word bepleit ten einde die professionele posisie van die vakgebied volledig te konsolideer.
