2015 Raymond A. Katzell Award in I-O Psychology

Piers Steel

Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, Hogan Assessment Systems

Raymond Katzell during his career unfailingly urged his students to publicize I-O research-based insights in order to both affect organizations within our society and improve individual working lives. Dr. Chamorro-Premuzic has done exactly that—bringing I-O science to the public through multiple forums, traditional and nontraditional, around the world. His research-based work is aimed at enhancing both individual career success and organizational effectiveness. He has created psychometrically sound tools and has made them available, often at no cost, to the wider public, helping individuals increase their self-awareness. Using social media, television, and radio, his public reach has been widespread. Two articles in Harvard Business Review alone—“Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders?” and “Seven Rules for Managing Creative, But Difficult People”—have been viewed nearly one million times. A recent book, Confidence, has sold more than 25,000 copies and has been reviewed in major publications around the world. A major article entitled “The Perfect Hire” in a 2013 issue of Scientific American on how technology and psychology are reshaping the search for the best employees is one of the few articles authored by an I-O psychologist in that magazine. He bridges both the academic and corporate worlds as a professor at University College London and Columbia University and as the recently appointed CEO of Hogan Assessments.
