2016 Distinguished Early Career Contributions Award - Science

In-Sue Oh, Temple University

Talent is highly sought after by business organizations and Dr. Oh has made significant contributions on staffing decision-making and consequences of such decisions for individuals, teams and organizations. He is a scholar who is able to make substantive theoretical contributions by using state-of-the-art methodological approaches. His work has been impactful on the relationship between employees’ personality traits and their job performance and the implications for using job applicants’ personalities as hiring criteria. He has been in the forefront of researchers making the case that measuring personality traits of job applicants are indeed important predictors of future job performance. Another significant finding dealt with self-report measures for personality, long considered to be valid and the way to assess personality. However, he demonstrated that the use of a wider perspective of measurement, in particular “observer” measures, is associated with larger and stronger validities than assessments based upon self-reports. He is a productive scholar with 60 publications in peer reviewed journals and more than 50 conference presentations. He makes extensive use of meta-analysis and has published papers on a variety of topics making him a researcher that other top I-O scholars want to work and publish with. In 2014 he received the Academy of Management’s HR Division Early Career Achievement Award. He also was the recipient of SIOP’s 2013 Joyce and Robert Hogan Award for Personality and Performance.
