Bowling Green, Ohio February 13, 2019 - Hailey Herleman, PhD, has been recognized with the Distinguished Early Career Contributions-Practice Award from the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP).
The annual award is given to a SIOP member who has made significant contributions to the practice of I-O psychology within ten years of receiving their PhD.
The awards committee evaluates the breadth or depth of the nominee's contributions, the extent to which the nominee's work is grounded in sound psychological research, the status of the nominee in the estimation of other prominent early career practitioners, and the impact of the nominee's work on the broader field.
Since receiving her PhD from Clemson University in 2009, Dr. Herleman has distinguished herself with her thought leadership, exceptional service to clients, and a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to applying analytics to workforce issues.
As a member of the go-to-market team for IBM's Kenexa unit, she quickly identified synergies between the team's I-O psychologists and colleagues from different areas including data science, economics, statistics, and data infrastructure. Using her ability to build relationships and bridge perspectives, she led the effort to create a work group offering clients uniquely valuable expertise at the data-driven frontier of workforce analytics.
Hailey Herleman has helped translate I-O psychology and its relation to analytics for the business public through her professional presentations and publications. She has also shared her learnings and expertise in this space through professional service, including the planning committee for the 2016 Leading Edge Consortium on Talent Analytics.
Hailey Herleman will be presented with the award 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.
