White Papers by SIOP's International Affairs Committee

One of the principal goals of the International Affairs Committee (IAC) is the publication of SIOP white papers on topics of interest to the international I-O community.

To meet this purpose, in April 2011, IAC Chair, Donald Truxillo, and White Paper Subcommittee Chairs, Lynda Zugec and Alok Bhupatkar, began the development of the white paper publication process with IAC Committee members Doug Pugh, Gene Johnson, Stephanie Klein, and Autumn Krauss. The IAC White Paper Series Board, including Barbara Kozusznik, Fernanda Afonso, and John C. Scott, helped make the initial round of white papers a success.

In 2013, Angelo DeNisi continued the effort with White Paper Subcommittee Chair, Lynda Zugec, and IAC members Stuart C. Carr, John C. Scott, and Soo Min Toh. The result of these efforts are the following white papers, which can be accessed by clicking on the title links below:

SIOP & SHRM White Papers

SIOP and SHRM: Promoting Evidence-Based HR


The research collaboration between SIOP and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is taking steps to put I-O psychology into the hands of HR practitioners. The collaboration is titled “Publication and Dissemination of Science to Practice: A Research Collaboration Between the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP).”

The premise of the project is to infuse the science behind the I-O psychology and human resources disciplines into management practices for daily use in the workplace. The collaboration has three main goals:

  • Make the science of I-O psychology accessible to SHRM members
  • Guide SHRM members in evidence-based HR practices
  • Enhance the visibility of the profession of I-O psychology

To accomplish these goals, SIOP is working to develop materials about topics that will be published and distributed by SHRM to its membership. Each collaborative article will be posted here and can also be viewed on SHRM's website here.
