2010 SIOP Award Winners

Anna Erickson, Chair
SIOP Awards Committee

On behalf of the SIOP Awards Committee and Executive Board, I am delighted to present the 2010 SIOP award winners. The following individuals were recognized for their outstanding contributions to I-O psychology at the 2010 annual conference in Atlanta. Congratulations to all of the award winners.

Daniel Sachau, Minnesota State University-Mankato
Distinguished Teaching Contributions Award

In both his classroom teaching and through his 20 years leading the I-O psychology graduate program at Minnesota State University, Dr. Sachau has been a role model for teaching students using the scientist–practitioner model. He has introduced a variety of innovative teaching programs including an annual I-O case competition, a biennial study-abroad program, and a weekly radio show.  In addition, he founded the Organizational Effectiveness Research Group (OERG), a consulting practice staffed by MSU students and faculty. OERG clients include the United States Air Force, UnitedHealth Group, London Metropolitan Police, and Mayo Hospitals.  Attesting to Dr. Sachau’s influence as a teacher and mentor is the regular visits alumni make to the campus to speak to students. They also host students at their organizations and hire them as interns. This degree of alumni involvement is a direct result of their loyalty to Dr. Sachau and to the program he has created. He has received several awards for his teaching, including the MSU College of Social and Behavioral Sciences Distinguished Professor Award (2008).

Michael A. Campion, Purdue University
Distinguished Scientific Contributions Award
In every facet of his professional career, Dr. Campion has promoted and facilitated I-O science with great clarity and persistence. He has made important scholarly contributions in at least three domains: job design, teams, and structured interviewing. He was instrumental in the development of an interdisciplinary approach to job design, combining psychology, engineering, human factors, and ergonomics. He was one of the first scholars to empirically link a variety of work-team characteristics to team effectiveness, especially articulating important team-member competencies necessary for team success as well as the development of selection tools that enable the measurement of such competencies. He followed this research by conducting influential empirical studies on structured interview development and the strong psychometric properties and predictive validity of structured interviews. He has more than 100 publications. He worked 8 years in industry with IBM and Weyerhauser early in his career, has performed over 400 consulting projects with over 100 clients in the last 25 years, and has a recruiting firm for I-O psychologists that has made nearly 60 placements. A former president of SIOP, he is a Fellow of SIOP, APA, and APS. He would like to especially thank his wonderful former students and other coauthors for their help in making this award possible. 

Riki Takeuchi, Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (HKUST)
Distinguished Early Career Contributions Award

Since receiving his doctorate from the University of Maryland in 2003, Dr. Takeuchi has established an exceptionally strong research record, a high level of commitment to teaching excellence and has been active in professional service. He has published (or has in press) 17 refereed journal articles, mostly in top-tier publications, which is considered an exceptionally high number for an early career researcher. Especially notable is his work in international expatriate adjustment and performance, which given the growing number of citations, is evidence that his work is being recognized by others working on expatriate issues. Additionally, he is developing research interests in strategic human resources management and social exchange relationships. Also, he has been appointed to six editorial boards (including Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Journal of Applied Psychology, and Personnel Psychology), further evidence that editors recognize his expertise and value his judgments. He has also been recognized for his effective teaching by being named a recipient of a Best Ten Lecturers Award, a student-initiated competition at HKUST. While a doctoral student and undergraduate instructor at Maryland, he was awarded the Krowe Award for teaching, the highest honor given to faculty of any rank.
