Bowling Green, Ohio February 13, 2019 – Seymour Adler PhD has been honored with the Distinguished Professional Contributions Award from the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP).
The award is given in recognition of a lifetime of outstanding contributions to the practice of industrial and organizational psychology.
The Distinguished Professional Contribution Award is given annually to honor an I-O psychologist whose work in a business, government or other organizational setting has had a major, demonstrable impact on people at work, organizations and the practice of I-O psychology.
Dr. Seymour Adler’s illustrious career has spanned both academia and practice. Seymour’s deep appreciation of I-O science has consistently informed his applied work. His work in selection and talent management has been especially impactful. In particular, Seymour adapted assessment center methodology for remote delivery, at scale and with psychometric rigor, to assess sales, customer service, and managerial skills. He also innovated methods for customer service performance monitoring and designed tools that have guided hiring and promotion decisions for decades at leading global organizations. His thought leadership extends to the more effective design and delivery of performance management, leadership development, and talent risk mitigation processes.
Popular as a mentor with students and junior colleagues, Seymour has actively disseminated his ideas, research, and best practices in the classroom for over 45 years and through numerous presentations and publications. He has also served on several important SIOP committees and is a past president of the New York Metropolitan Association of Applied Psychology.
Seymour Adler’s achievements will be recognized during the opening plenary of the 34th Annual SIOP Conference, held April 4-6 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington DC/National Harbor. Learn more about the conference here.
