2014 Raymond A. Katzell Award in I-O Psychology

Piers Steel

Benjamin Dattner, Dattner Consulting, LLC and New York University

This award recognizes a SIOP member whose expertise addresses organizational and workplace issues and who has raised public awareness of the value of I-O. Dr. Dattner through the years has become a reliable source for workplace stories in the news media and is frequently quoted in many outlets including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Harvard Business Review. He often appears on national television and is a regular on NPR discussing various aspects of the workplace. He is the author of the acclaimed book The Blame Game, which explores the centrality of psychology in organizational life and careers. Having served for many years on SIOP’s Visibility Committee, he also has a key role in arranging periodic SIOP Media Luncheons in New York City, an event that brings workplace and careers journalists together with senior SIOP leaders. Through his research and teaching as an adjunct professor at New York University, his work encompasses both sides of the scientist-practitioner model, and he has been an enormously effective ambassador for our profession. His philosophy about I-O’s need for a continued focus on visibility in the media can be summed up succinctly: “If we I-O psychologists don’t claim our expertise and the value we provide, others will.”
