Silvia Dello Russo (ISCTE-IUL, Portugal), Bernd Carette (Ghent University, Belgium), and Roberto Petrucci (AXA MPS Financial Ltd.) receive a small grant for their work “Are Informal Performance Management Systems Facilitating Learning? An Experience Sampling Investigation of Informal Performance Management.”

A grant is given to Lu Zheng (Auburn University), Yongxin Li (Henan University), and Nathan D. Page (Assessment Associates International, LLC) for their project “Testing the Effectiveness and Mechanisms of Several Prewarnings in Reducing Applicant Faking on Personality Tests Within Selection Contexts: A Field Investigation.”

Abdifatah Ali (Michigan State University), Ann Marie Ryan (Michigan State University), Brent Lyons (Simon Fraser University), and Jessica Keeney (APTMetrics, Inc.) receive a small grant for research entitled “Checking Criminal Records: Its Consequences for Applicants and Employers.”

The purpose of our grant was to answer questions pertinent to employers (how do decision-makers form judgments of job-relatedness when considering criminal record information?) as well as job-seekers (how do applicants with a criminal record manage their impressions?).


A grant is also given to Ute R. Hülsheger (Maastricht University) for her study, "Mindfulness@Work: Promoting Work-Related Well-Being by Cultivating Equanimity."

Apart from individual suffering, these developments are associated with increases in absenteeism, medical care costs and reduced work performance and therefore do not only affect individuals but also organizations and the wider society (Eurofound, 2007).
