Bowling Green, Ohio March 21, 2019 - Jill Ellingson, PhD, has been named a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP).

Ellingson is one of 20 distinguished industrial-organizational psychologists to be awarded SIOP Fellow status on Thursday, April 4, 2019 at the 34th Annual SIOP Conference.

The profession of industrial and organizational psychology addresses the full range of human interactions in organizational settings. Members of the profession may be researchers, teachers, practitioners or administrators. They work in several settings including in business, government, consulting, and academia. SIOP Fellows may be recognized for outstanding contributions to the profession in any of these areas.

Dr. Jill Ellingson's cutting-edge research on individual differences, personality testing, and response distortion has contributed significantly to understanding how to improve selection and performance at work. She is regarded as a foremost expert in her primary field of study, her work has had significant influence on the work of other researchers, and her methods have become the gold standard for how to evaluate response distortion in field settings. Dr. Ellingson has served on several editorial boards and her research on high stakes testing has also had extensive impact on the practice of applied testing. Generous with her time and talents and intensely curious about organizational and psychological phenomena, Jill Ellingson is an exemplary SIOP citizen, and an inspiration to her colleagues.

To be considered for SIOP Fellow status, a member must be nominated by another member, and endorsed by at least three more SIOP Fellows. A member who has been active in the Society for ten years or more is eligible based on meaningful, sustained and unusual impact on the field.
