INNOVATIVE ASSESSMENT OF COLLABORATION 2 DAY WORKING MEETING

Hilton Doubletree Arlington, VA, Monday, Nov. 3 – Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2014

The rapidly growing literature on teamwork and collaborative problem solving suggests that these skills are becoming increasingly important in today’s organizations. However, the significant developments in these domains are occurring across different research communities and as a result, are largely independent of one another.

Educational Testing Service (ETS) is hosting a two-day working meeting organized around five thematic panels that will bring together researchers in organizational teaming, educational collaboration, tutoring, simulation, and gaming, as well as, those involved in statistical and psychometric process modeling so that practitioners and researchers who approach teamwork and collaborative problem solving from different perspectives can come together to share their insights and contribute to the development of reliable and valid collaborative assessment

Organizers

Alina A. Von Davier, Senior Research Director, Center for Advanced Psychometrics, ETS; Patrick Kyllonen, Senior Research Director, Center for Academic and Workforce Readiness and Success, ETS; and Mengxiao Zhu, Associate Research Scientist, Center for Advanced Psychometrics, ETS
 
Proposed Panels & Presenters

Panel 1: Evaluation of Team Performance in Organizations
Nancy Cooke - Arizona State University
Eduardo Salas and Stephen Fiore - University of Central Florida
Leslie DeChurch - Georgia Institute of Technology

Special Issue: Call for Papers in the Journal of Business and Psychology

“EMBEDDING THE CONCEPT OF SUSPICION IN RESEARCH ON BUSINESS AND APPLIED PSYCHOLOGY”

The Journal of Business and Psychology (JBP) announces a Special Issue and Call for Papers (theoretical and empirical submissions) on the construct of suspicion. Please see the complete call at http://newhouse-faculty.syr.edu/lhirshfield/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2014/04/suspicion-call-for-papers.pdf

This link includes (i) an associated article (Bobko et al., JPB; “Invited Article: The Construct of Suspicion and How It Can Benefit Theories and Models in Organizational Science”; this article can also be obtained directly at http://newhouse-faculty.syr.edu/lhirshfield/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2014/04/BBHandL_JBP.pdf

Suspicion is defined as “a person’s simultaneous state of cognitive activity, uncertainty, and perceived malintent about underlying information that is being [electronically] generated, collated, sent, analyzed, or implemented by an external agent.” (Bobko et al., Human Factors, 2014). The notion of “external agent” is purposively general; e.g., one might be suspicious about another individual, a competitor, a group/team of individuals, an organizational entity, or a computer system.

We suggest that the under-represented concept of suspicion can have important links to many sub-disciplines in business and applied psychology. For example:

  • What is the role of suspicion in leadership? In decision making? In the acceptance of automatized decision aides?
  • How might the concept of suspicion change (if at all) at the group/team level? Within groups, is suspicion contagious? What is the role of culture in theories of suspicion?

See the complete call for details and more extended examples.

The final due date for submissions (in APA style) is June 30, 2015. To submit, corresponding authors should first register in the JBP system (at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jobu/ ).

Guide - Facilitating an employee’s return to work following an absence for a mental health problem

The IRSST just published a “Guide to an integrated practices program for supporting a return to work and promoting job retention - Facilitating an employee’s return to work following an absence for a mental health problem”.

Mental health problems in the workplace are currently one of the main causes of work absence, a phenomenon that has seen a marked increase in the last two decades. Research work in the occupational rehabilitation and mental health field has highlighted the importance of a collaborative process involving the stakeholders in the return-to-work process. However, while a handful of studies have focused on the work reintegration of workers who held jobs but had been absent from them for mental health reasons, very few of these studies have specifically explored the design and implementation of return-to-work programs. 

This guide was designed to help workplace develop a process for assisting and supporting the return to work of employees who have been absent from work for mental health reasons, ultimately to facilitate their recovery and return to work.

It is a practical guide that spells out both individual support strategies and organizational changes that can be made.  The guide is intended for company executives and managers, human resources departments, and union groups concerned about workers’ health and job retention, but also for practitioners in the workplace, particularly physicians, occupational health professionals, company psychologists, and rehabilitation counsellors.

It was produced as the result of a study funded by the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST).

The complete report on the study can be found on the IRSST’s Web site: Supporting a Return to Work after an Absence for a Psychological Health Problem: Design, Implementation, and Evaluation of an Integrated Practices Program

Seeking Unpublished Studies on Workgroup and Organizational Identification

We – Nik Steffens, Alex Haslam, Jolanda Jetten, Sebastian Schuh, and Rolf van Dick – are currently conducting a meta-analysis on the relationship between organizational / workgroup identification and stress and well-being in the workplace.

We have already identified and analyzed a number of published studies and we are now seeking unpublished work in this area. With this in mind, we would appreciate if you could share with us any published data not listed on common electronic databases (e.g., book chapters). We also seek to include unpublished papers or data (e.g., work in press or in progress) that include statistical details on this topic. Specifically, the paper should report statistics concerning the relationship (negative, non-existent, or positive) between identification at work (with either a workgroup, a department, or an organization) and at least one measure of well-being or stress. We include correlational, longitudinal, and experimental examinations of this relationship. Correlates or outcomes could be one of the following:

  • Self-reported well-being (e.g., psychological comfort, work engagement)
  • Self-reported stress (e.g., exhaustion, strain, burnout)
  • Physiological indicators of stress or well-being (e.g., physiological functioning, heart-rate variability, cortisol levels)

If you do have relevant work, we would be grateful if you could send the relevant information — e.g., a standard report of the method and findings (via published papers, references, unpublished documents, etc.)—to Nik Steffens (n.steffens@uq.edu.au) by 30 April 2014.

Your help with, and contribution to, this project would not only make this meta-analysis more comprehensive but potentially also enhance the visibility and impact of your work. In any case, we hope you can help. We apologize for any potential cross-posting of this call and we look forward to hearing from you.

Annual Reviews announces launch of new journal: Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior

Palo Alto, CA – March 31st, 2014. Annual Reviews is proud to announce the launch of the Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior. The purpose of this new journal is to provide distinctive reviews across the range of topics in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, Human Resources Management, and Organizational Behavior, summarizing significant developments in the field.

This new journal results from growing coverage of these topics within the Annual Review of Psychology—one of the highest impact journals in psychology. The extensive level of interest in organizational psychology and organizational behavior clearly justifies a journal dedicated to this important area.

Editor Frederick P. Morgeson (Eli Broad Professor of Management in the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University) commented, “Although we are cognizant of the numerous outlets for review articles, none are published annually focusing exclusively on research conducted in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, Human Resources Management, and Organizational Behavior. We see this as a significant gap, particularly for such a diverse and vibrant domain. We believe that the Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior will occupy a unique place in the field and contribute to the codification and advancement of our science by providing in-depth and extensive coverage of the domain.”

In this interdisciplinary field, it is challenging to keep up to date with the plethora of relevant studies published every year. The Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior will capture what is known as well as identify current trends and key areas in need of future investigation. The journal appeals to a diverse audience, including researchers and practitioners working in psychology departments, business schools, and public and private sector organizations across the globe.

Complimentary online access to the first volume of the journal is available until March 2015 at orgpsych.annualreviews.org. Interested institutions that do not have a current online account and would like to see their usage of the complimentary access to the journal may contact the Sales Department (sales@annualreviews.org) to register for usage statistics.

Please visit the Annual Reviews booth to learn more about this new journal at the following events:

  • SIOP Annual Conference: May 15-17, Honolulu, HI
  • Academy of Management Annual Meeting: August 1-5, Philadelphia, PA

For more information, contact: Jenni Rankin, Marketing Manager, news@annualreviews.org, 650-843-6634

Baby Boomers who are virtual team members needed for research study

Dissertation Study Title:  “The experience of working in a virtual team among baby boomers”

Description of Project: The purpose of this study is to investigate how baby boomer employees, ages 55-65, feel about working in a virtual team.

Purpose:  The findings of the study will help organizations, team leaders, and employees gain a deeper understanding of the experience of working in a virtual team, which may benefit those who are leading in a virtual setting and those who work for them.  Understanding virtual experiences specific to baby boomer generation workers may also help to reduce stereotypes associated with this generation.

What is a virtual team?  In a virtual team, members are typically geographically dispersed and   their primary method of communication is via computer-mediated sources.

To participate: This study will have two basic qualifying criteria, being between the ages of 55 to 65 and having experience working in virtual teams.  Your participation would involve a confidential online interview via Skype of about one hour.

For more information about this study, or to volunteer to participate, please contact: Sheila Verges-Osuna, at 787-432-7194, 703-729-5952, or vergesosunaphd@yahoo.com.

First HR Division International Conference (HRIC), June, 2014, Beijing, China

June 15th-16th, 2014, in Beijing, China. The Conference Theme is ‘Convergence and Divergence in Human Resource Management’. Co-sponsored by the HR Division of the Academy of Management (AOM), The International Journal of Human Resource Management, and Renmin University, this conference will focus on trends of convergence and divergence of human resource management research and practice in different cultures and nations.

The HRIC program will feature four prominent keynote speakers: Pawan Budhwar (Aston University), David Lepak (Rutgers University), Kwok Leung (City University of Hong Kong), and Anne Tsui (Arizona State University).

Over the past decades, as organizations seek for ways to reduce the barriers to operating in the global community, research has led to important insights about HR strategy, practices, and outcomes. However, large gaps remain in understanding HRM processes in different cultural contexts.  The HRIC seeks to attract scholars from around the world to share ideas on all aspects of HR – not just international aspects of HR. We invite proposals for paper presentations, symposia and workshops sessions.

Submission Guidelines

The deadlines have passed. No submissions are being accepted at this time.

Call for authors/co-authors & reviewers for introductory psychology content

I'm a sub-committee member of SIOP's Education and Training Committee. Our goal is to get more I-O psychology content into undergraduate introductory psychology textbooks. We've put together a 2-3 minute survey (http://questionpro.com/t/AE6ItZP2bj) with the goal of putting together a database of researchers (Ph.D. academics and practitioners as well as ABD co-authors) willing to be called upon in the future (TBA) to voluntarily review or author/co-author 1-2 page summaries of the literature for use in these textbooks. This survey is one of our first steps in our effort to push textbook editors to include more I-O psychology content in their books. Please pass this along to others who may be interested in volunteering. We will be in touch with respondents as soon as we have more information.
