Nominations Now Open for Michael R. Losey Human Resource Research Award

Nominations are now open for the Michael R. Losey Human Resource Research Award, which honors lifetime achievement in human resource research, recognizing an individual for significant past and ongoing research contributions that impact the HR management field.

This prestigious award recognizes significant contributions to the HR field through empirical research and its application to practice. The annual award provides $50,000 to the honored researcher to further the field of human resource management.

Submissions must be received no later than July 14, 2014.
Self-nominations are not accepted. Submissions
guidelines can be found here.

To be eligible, a nominee must possess a broad and deep track record of contributions to the HR discipline through research, as well as interactions with the practitioner community. Examples include speaking and consulting engagements, authoring books, book chapters, or journal articles that have affected how HR is practiced.

The winning nominee will also have an extensive body of published research in top-tier, peer-reviewed journals such as:

  • Human Resource Management (HRMJ)
  • Journal of Management (JOM)
  • Journal of Applied Psychology (JAP)
  • Academy of Management Journal (AMJ)
  • Personnel Psychology (PP)

Several SIOP members have been honored with the Losey award in recent years, winning 9 of the 10 given awards. SIOP winners include Eduardo Salas, Sara Rynes, Wayne F. Cascio, Benjamin Schneider, Herbert G. Heneman III, Michael Beer, Frank Schmidt, Edward E. Lawler, III, and John Boudreau. Profiles of the previous recipients of the Losey award are featured on the SHRM website.

The award began when the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and its affiliates, the SHRM Foundation and the HR Certification Institute, established an endowment fund in honor of retired SHRM President and CEO Michael R. Losey, SPHR, CAE. This research fund has been established by the three boards to honor Mr. Losey and his contributions to the society and the HR field.
