Industrial Psychology and Building an EP Team | Nico and Nicolene Schutte

You can get in the mind of your adversary but have you ever looked under the hood at what makes your own team or organization tick?

We are delighted to welcome Nico and Nicolene Schutte, Industrial Psychologists from the University of Johannesburg with strong family ties to South African Executive Protection to ask:

  • What can Industrial or Organizational Psychology do to help improve retention and increase job satisfaction within Executive Protection?
  • Where does Industrial Psychology sit within the business skills needed to scale an EP business or operation?
  • When we or our team have been on training courses how can they demonstrate cognition of the material and put it into practice?
  • Where are psychometrics useful or relevant in the modern security team?
  • How can we increase employee engagement and motivation beyond remuneration?
