2016 Losey Research Award

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM),is pleased to invite nominations for the 2016 Michael R. Losey Human Resource Research Award. The recipient of this award will be presented with a check for $50,000 at the fall SHRM Volunteers Leader's Summit in recognition of his or her research in the field of HR.

As a NAHR Leader you are in a unique position to nominate a research professional, who in your opinion, is deserving of this award. The purpose of this premier award is to acknowledge significant past research accomplishments and facilitate continuing research by an individual to the HR management field. It is akin to a lifetime achievement award to honor the individual’s contributions to the field of HR through his or her research. Past recipients of this award include Dr. Edward Lawler, III, Dr. Lee Dyer, Dr. Frank Schmidt, Dr. Gary Latham, Dr. Michael Beer, Dr. Herbert G. Heneman, III, Dr. Benjamin Schneider, Dr. Wayne F. Cascio, Dr. Sara Rynes, Dr. Eduardo Salas , Dr. John Boudreau, Dr. Patrick Wright, and Dr. Susan Jackson.

Consideration will be given to an HR expert and researcher who has made significant past contributions and whose research will facilitate continuing contributions to the HR field. Only nominations from an individual nominating another individual will be accepted. Nominators should nominate an individual who has considerable experience and a proven track record as demonstrated through published works and other HR-related accomplishments. The recipient will work with SHRM in publicizing the award and disseminating his or her research and its implications for HR practice.

The nomination process is easy. The nomination letter, which plays a significant role, should describe the reason(s) why this individual is being nominated, along with an explanation of the nominee’s significant past and continuing research contributions related to the HR field and a detailed CV of that individual. Particular attention in the letter should be drawn to how the researcher’s work has influenced practice. The enclosed flyer describes the award and nomination process in more detail.
