Andrei Ion coordinated the implementation of various research projects. Andrei’s key research interest resides in investigation the role and importance of individual differences in the workplace. This line of research led to non-trivial contributions to the field of I/O psychology and individual differences. In several investigations, Andrei explored the construct or predictive validity of personality constructs in predicting job-relevant outcomes, such as job performance or organizational citizenship behaviors (e.g. Iliescu, Ilie, Ispas, & Ion, 2012; Ion, Iliescu, Ilie, & Ispas, 2016). First and foremost, these studies led to the conclusion that the current understanding of the personality-job performance relationship is limited. First, this limitation stems from relying exclusively on the five-factor personality traits in explaining job performance. Second, the current understating of the personality job performance relationship is based exclusively on the view that personality dimensions are static in nature.
