Biography

Collins Agyemang is professionally an Industrial and Organizational Psychologist and Organizational Consultant based in Ghana. He is an Executive Board Member and the National Organizing Secretary for Ghana Psychological Association (GPA).

By dint of hard work in his academic endeavour, he was contracted and engaged as a Research and Teaching Assistant after his MPhil Degree. Collins enhanced himself by tapping experiences from seasoned academic staff and was groomed in the field of consultancy as he worked as an aide to senior consultants in Industrial and Organizational Psychology Consult. He has demonstrable knowledge in statistical tool applications. His love and mastery over research was an influential factor in his appointment as a Teaching and Research Assistant years ago at University of Ghana’s Department of Psychology. He also possesses enormous experience in the development and implementation of technical HR practices.

Over the years, he has lectured in areas such as Organizational Behaviour, Human Resource Management, Operations Management, Research Methods, Introduction to Management, Management of Small and Medium Enterprise, Applied Psychology and Public Relations, Business Ethics, and other Psychology related courses. He has vast research experience and has published a number of research outputs in reputable journals in the area of stigmatization in the workplace, employee-employer relations, occupational health and safety, and organizational behaviour.  He has attended and presented papers at several conferences in Africa and Europe. He is currently researching on the training, recruitment, and adjustment patterns of retired military personnel into the civilian workforce. He loves research and takes interest in empowering students to think outside the box in a creative fashion.

Prior to joining academia, he was managing his own private businesses and concurrently served as a General Manager for Nayak Holiday Services Limited, in Accra, for many years where he took several initiatives to transform the company’s standing. His ability to manage the diverse groups of people has been particularly noteworthy. He also availed himself to international job prospects and took up an appointment in Allied Bakeries, UK, as a Frontline Supervisor and Coordinator of Health and Safety in one of the production plants.
