BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Herman Aguinis, a professor of organizational behavior and human resources and the founding director of the Institute for Global Organizational Effectiveness at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business, is being honored by the Academy of Management with its Research Methods Division Distinguished Career Award.
He is being recognized for his lifetime scientific contributions. The Academy of Management, founded in 1936, is a leading professional association for scholars dedicated to creating and disseminating knowledge about management and organizations and includes about 20,000 members from 110 nations.
Aguinis, who also holds the title of dean's research professor, will receive the award during the Academy of Management's annual conference Aug. 6 in Boston. Former Kelley School Dean Dan Dalton received the same award last year. Kelley is the only business school to have had more than one recipient of this prestigious award.
"I am deeply honored by this award," Aguinis said. "I would like to thank the many colleagues and doctoral students with whom I have worked during the past two decades. The complexity of the research projects in which I am involved requires a team approach, and it is because of our collective efforts that I have received this award from the Academy of Management."
"Herman Aguinis is an extraordinarily capable scholar. I am delighted to see that his colleagues within the academy recognize his many contributions to both theory and practice," added Dan Smith, dean of the Kelley School. "He is certainly most deserving of this most recent honor."
Aguinis is an expert in the fields of organizational behavior, human resource management and research methods and analysis. His research is interdisciplinary and addresses human capital acquisition, development and deployment
He has published five books and has written more than 70 refereed journal articles. Also, he delivered more than 100 invited presentations at universities in the United States and worldwide, including in Argentina, Australia, China, France, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore, Spain and South Africa.
He is a fellow of the American Psychological Association, the Association for Psychological Science and the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology. He was inducted into the Society of Organizational Behavior and the Society for Research Synthesis Methodology.
Other recent recognitions and awards include the Academy of Management Entrepreneurship Division IDEA Thought Leader Award in 2011, and the Academy of Management Research Methods Division Robert McDonald Advancement of Organizational Research Methodology Award in 2009.
In addition to his academic activities, Aguinis has consulted with organizations in the U.S., Europe and Latin America.
