The 'OCEAN' is creating tumultuous waves in the industry career: Perspectives in contemporary organisational psychology

Singh, Amir

The current work discusses organisational psychology within the context of Singapore’s economy. Indeed, employers would be hard pressed to find the right people to employ. Such an instrument as the ‘OCEAN’ model would be most prudent here. The ‘OCEAN’ is an acronym of the five distinct attributes of the well-acclaimed Five Factor Model, which has been authenticated throughout the years by a many number of researchers and psychologists. Having identified several assessments, we could see why the ‘OCEAN’ model is extremely popular, having several assessments such as the 16PF and Hogan Personality Inventory of shared association, while that of others supplementing the ‘OCEAN’ model as a whole. With our identification of our previous economic ills over the current years in Singapore, we can come to a few hypotheses. Firstly, the ‘OCEAN’ model identifies employee personalities, secondly, people who go through the ‘OCEAN’ model will be more successful, and thirdly, tumultuous waves as defined by the retrenchment, redundancy, and unemployment issues in Singapore, are reviving the ‘OCEAN’ model.
