Entrepreneurship scholars have been open to new ways of conducting research and eager to explore how neurological topics may connect to more conventional entrepreneurship scholarship. Indeed, recent calls for papers indicate more papers connecting neuroscience and entrepreneurship are on the horizon (”Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice”, 2019). There have been several nonempirical publications and a handful of empirical papers written to explore ways of merging neurosciences with entrepreneurship. Thus, it appears that we are on the cusp of much more research in this area.

The majority (over 70% in typical years) of the SIOP annual conference attendees have attended at least one other SIOP conference. Those I-O professionals and students already know the ins and outs of the conference and are likely looking forward to learning about the newest advances in research and practice, as well as reconnecting with friends and colleagues in the near future. However, if this year’s conference in Washington, DC/National Harbor follows the trend from 2018, well over one-quarter of all attendees will be first timers. For them, an annual meeting of this size and scope can prove to be daunting.

Max. Classroom Capacity: Say My Name, Say My Name…

In the spirit of self-improvement that my friend Marcus Dickson imprinted into the DNA of this column when he created it, I’d like to admit to a personal failing: I’m terrible at remembering peoples’ names. I’m the kind of awful person you meet at a party who forgets your name 3 seconds after you said it. I’ll remember everything else about our conversation but not your name. I took several cognitive psych classes as a student, so I know about different encoding strategies—I never remember to use them! It’s not something that I’m proud of, and it’s also a professional handicap, especially at the beginning of a new semester when you meet dozens of bright-eyed and bushy-tailed students in the classroom. So over the years I’ve developed some strategies for remembering students’ names that I’d like to share with you in the hopes that you find some of them useful.

The Wiley Award recognizes innovation and effectiveness in the design and implementation of customer or employee surveys. To merit award, nominated research must demonstrate innovation and effectiveness throughout multiple phases of the research. The 2018 Wiley Award winners of Catherine (Carrie) J. Ott-Holland (Google, Inc.), William (Will) J. Shepherd (Wendy’s Corporation), and Ann Marie Ryan (Michigan State University) exemplified innovation and effectiveness throughout the project’s entire lifecycle including conceptualization (e.g., examining actual change of employee outcomes), data collection (e.g., partnering with third party data management services to avoid data identifiability and privacy issues), data analysis (e.g., multilevel structural equation model with probit links), through reporting and publishing the project’s results in Journal of Occupational Health Psychology (see below for full paper reference). In this issue of the Awards Spotlight column, we interviewed the project’s two first authors (Carrie and Will, pictured below) to learn in more detail about these innovations. Our questions and the authors’ paraphrased responses can be found below.
