2011 Distinguished Scientific Contributions Award

Dr. Richard D. Arvey, National University of Singapore

Considered one of the most innovative and creative researchers in I-O psychology, Dr. Arvey’s research interests are exceptionally broad and have received critical acclaim. He is one of the foremost authorities on the importance of biological variables in work behavior, satisfaction, values, leadership, entrepreneurship, performance appraisal, and training and development. He has convincingly demonstrated that a range of job attitudes and behaviors have genetic determinants. He has also been instrumental in drawing attention to the issue of fairness in personnel selection, especially through his book Fairness in Selecting Employees. His contributions in research methods and measurement have led to a number of important papers on the assessment of job similarity and dissimilarity, synthetic validity, job evaluation, and comparable worth. During his 30 years as an I-O psychologist, he has published more than 100 articles, chapters, and technical reports. In addition, he has consulted with numerous organizations, including helping to devise a selection system for NASA long duration space flight astronauts.
