Alexander Alonso, Lorin Mueller, & Eric Dunleavy: A Partnership Forged Over Years of SIOP Conferences

Alexander Alonso, SHRM-SCP, Chief Knowledge Officer, Society for Human Resource Management

 Below are pictures from 3 different SIOP conferences—2010, 2019, and 2023. In each case, we (Eric, Lorin, and I) connected as friends and as a network of peers. Although the three of us worked in one for a year, our careers took us in different directions. Ironically, each of these events led to some innovative research in each others’ work.

In 2010, Eric and I had a seafood dinner where the service was so bad we ended up writing about selection in the restaurant industry.

In 2019, we went to a ball game and ended talking about taboo topics and how they taint the culture of organizations. That led to a book by Alex.

The last one was a recognition of the career partnership, that Lorin and I are forever brochachos!
