Raymond A. Katzell Award in I-O Psychology 

This award is designed to recognize a SIOP member who, in a major way, has shown to the general public the importance of work done by I-O psychology for addressing social issues, that is, research that makes a difference for people.

The award recipient will receive $3,000.

Evaluation Criteria

The Katzell Award Committee will select a SIOP Member based on the following criteria:

  • The awardee(s) must be a member of SIOP, preferably with a degree in psychology
  • The work shown to the general public must be research-based, and its application clearly demonstrated
  • The work must have an impact on society’s well-being: e.g., making work organizations better places to work, more satisfying to workers, more efficient, or creating a service that is beneficial to the public
  • The demonstration to the public must be widespread, reaching a substantial part of the public
  • If the creators of the work and those who publicized it were not the same, the creators would be the awardee(s).  An exception would be the creation of a book, film, or other publication that summarized and popularized a significant body of research and application.  In that instance, the creator(s) of that publication would be the awardee(s)
