Mount Wins SIOP Award
Mick Mount, the Henry B. Tippie Research Professor of Human Resource Management, and two former Ph.D. students, In-Sue Oh (Temple University) and Gang Wang (University of Idaho), won the SIOP 2013 Joyce and Robert Hogan Award for Personality and Performance.
Their paper was judged to have the highest potential to further the understanding of personality as it relates to work performance. "Our results underscore the importance of disentangling the validity of personality traits from the method of measurement of the traits," the authors stated in the article (Oh, I.S., Gang, W., & Mount, M.K., “Validity of Observer Ratings of the Five-Factor Model of Personality Traits: A Meta-Analysis,” Journal of Applied Psychology, 96, 2011).
