Herman Aguinis, PhD, has been honored with the Distinguished Scientific Contributions Award from the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP).

The annual award is given in recognition of a lifetime of outstanding contributions to the science of industrial and organizational psychology.

The Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award honors an I-O psychologist who has made the most distinguished empirical and/or theoretical scientific contributions to the field, whether the contributions were made in industry, academia, government, or any other organizational setting.

Dr. Aguinis has produced an enviable record of influential scientific contributions to industrial and organizational psychology. His 180 journal articles and nine books have created new research agendas, shaped existing ones, and changed the conversation in many I-O psychology domains.

In addition to a breadth of theoretical and empirical contributions, Dr. Aguinis has made important contributions to issues of interest to I-O psychology research and practice, making him the embodiment of the scientist-practitioner model. He is also an ambassador for I-O psychology across national, cultural, and scientific-field borders.

Dr. Aguinis' theoretical and empirical innovativeness and influence can be seen in many important areas, including corporate social responsibility, star performers and the distribution of performance, test bias and fairness, methodological best-practice recommendations, and state-of-the-science contributions. For these, and other contributions, he has been ranked among the most impactful, the most influential, and the most productive researchers in the world.

Aguinis, and SIOP's other distinguished award recipients, were honored during the opening plenary of the 36th SIOP Annual Conference, held virtually April 14-17.
