2015 Distinguished Professional Contributions Award

Rob Silzer, HR Assessment and Development Inc., and Baruch, CUNY

As a leading practitioner for 40 years, Dr. Silzer has had a profound influence on the field of I-O psychology. His efforts to advance knowledge and practice in individual assessment, talent management, executive development, leadership potential, and professional practice have been the foundation for much outstanding work by I-O psychologists. He helped to build an applied knowledge base that emphasizes rigorous I-O science. He has made major contributions in over 150 domestic/international client organizations. He has had a major impact on I-O psychology through his writing, workshops, presentations, and teaching. He significantly impacted professional education by delivering 10 SIOP workshops (also APA, NY Metro and IAAP workshops) as well as originating and leading the Leading Edge Consortia (LEC). His passion for creating and disseminating new knowledge is evidenced by his three edited books in SIOP’s Professional Practice Series, 14 book chapters, 40 professional articles, and 28 data-based TIP articles, a prolific output for a practitioner. He has strongly advocated for I-O practice by collecting data from colleagues, providing new insights and challenging the status quo. He also has a passion for graduate education and is a popular doctoral faculty member at Baruch (CUNY). He is a Fellow in SIOP, APA, APS, and SCP. Through all his involvements, he has made an enormous contribution to I-O psychology.
