The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) share a deep commitment to promoting human resource management practices that contribute to the success of today’s global work organizations, making them better places in which to work. Both societies also share a belief that the way to improve practice is to publicize the best available evidence regarding the usefulness and impact of successfully implemented innovative HRM initiatives.The HRM Impact Award was designed with this in mind.

Annually, SIOP and SHRM will seek applications for the HRM Impact Award. Organizations are invited to submit their most effective evidence-based HR practice or initiative for recognition. Benefits to organizations receiving this award include:

 

  • Being a recognized leader in the critically important area of evidence-based HR practice
  • Retaining top HR talent who support and value evidence-based HR practice
  • Attracting top HR talent who want to work for an organization who is a recognized leader in the area of evidence-based HR practice

In addition, the winner of the HRM Impact Award will receive a plaque presented jointly by SHRM & SIOP at SIOP’s annual conference and be recognized in various media outlets highlighting the award and the innovative HRM practice or initiative. 

 

The HRM Impact Award Winners will be announced in January!

  • People impact – satisfaction, turnover, number of complaints, etc.
  • Scientific impact – extent initiative can be replicated in other organizations and extent of the innovative or “game-changing” nature on the practice of HR, management, and industrial-organizational psychology as a result of the initiative.

Eligibility

Eligibility Requirements

Any for-profit, not-for-profit, or government organization, located anywhere in the world, may apply for recognition of an evidence-based initiative or practice used internally by that organization.

The award will be presented to the organization in which the project or initiative has been implemented, with appropriate recognition also given to the consulting firm or other outside organization that developed or assisted in implementing the project or initiative. Membership in SHRM and/or SIOP is not required. Applications must be submitted in English.

The featured practice may be currently in use or have been in use within the past five years; however a practice or initiative within a particular organization can be nominated only once, unless re-submission is specifically invited by the HRM Impact Award Review Committee. Any type of HR practice or initiative may be nominated.

The practice must be established enough to have generated data demonstrating its return on investment (ROI) and/or effectiveness. Applicants must provide measurement data to demonstrate evidence of the practice’s effectiveness and/or ROI. If selected for an award, applicants must be willing to share the details of this practice in one or more of the following ways: brief video, academic case study, HR Magazine and/or TIP article, media interviews, presentations, and/or social media.
