The School of Management’s Professor Rob Briner, Professor of Organisational Psychology, has been chosen as the 2014 winner of the Division of Occupational Psychology (DOP) Academic Contribution to Practice award (ACP).

The Academic Contribution to Practice award is part of the DOP’s award portfolio which recognises a body of work by an academic that has made a substantial impact on practice in the workplace.
The judges cited Professor Briner’s great efforts to “actively disseminate research and engage with different audiences via the media” as reasons for his selection.

The award will be presented at the Annual Division of Occupational Psychology Awards Night, to be held in the Living Room at London’s City Hall on Monday 17th November.

Professor Rob Briner commented:
“This award means a lot to me personally because I am a psychologist and have many occupational psychology practitioner colleagues and friends. I’ve been involved in promoting the idea of evidence-based practice in occupational psychology for many years so I’m delighted that this recognition means that at last it seems that the idea is starting to have some impact among practitioners.”
