Kudos to Niels Waller and Deniz Ones
Dear Psychology Colleagues,
Our faculty continue to distinguish themselves nationally and internationally.
Congratulations to Niels Waller and Deniz Ones!
Niels will be the Keynote Speaker at the upcoming 2010 European Conference on Personality (20-24 July) organized by European Association of Personality Psychology (EAPP). The conference takes place in Brno, the second largest city in the Czech Republic.
“I was honored with two competitive awards at the annual conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (Division 14 of the American Psychological Association).
First, one of my poster presentations (co-authored with a 2008 Minnesota graduate) was singled out, based on high ratings from referees, for the ‘Featured Top Posters’ special presentation at the conference. Our submission was one of 28 (out of a total of 879) recognized in this way. Also, current IO graduate students Winny Shen and Adam Beatty (co-author: Professor Sackett) received the same award for a paper that was completed for the meta-analysis doctoral seminar I taught last year.
Second, our research project “Developing a Taxonomy of Green Behaviors at Work,” conducted in collaboration between Professor Deniz Ones (U of MN), Professor Stephan Dilchert ( Baruch College , City University of New York) and Dr. Andy Biga (Procter and Gamble), was honored with a highly sought, competitive SIOP grant award for scientist-practitioner collaborations. As part of this research, we are establishing indicators of environmentally conscious behaviors among employees, managers, and senior leaders, with special emphasis on those behaviors that support green performance in the workforces of innovative organizations. The overarching goal of this project is the development of a comprehensive taxonomy of environmentally friendly (and destructive) behaviors and their prediction from an individual worker’s perspective. “
