Dr. Kevin Kelloway

Dr. Kevin Kelloway will be honoured by the Society for Psychology in Management (SPIM) when he receives the Distinguished Psychologist in Management Award next month.

“To get this kind of recognition from practitioners and people in organizations is a tremendous honour,” said Dr. Kelloway, who is a Canada Research Chair in Occupational Health Psychology and a Professor in the Department of Psychology at Saint Mary’s. “SPIM is a largely American association, and in Canada we tend to fly under the radar, so it’s very nice to be noticed.”

Annually awarded by SPIM, the Distinguished Psychologist in Management Award recognizes outstanding contributions to the practice of management by a psychologist.

“The Distinguished Psychologist in Management Award is SPIM's highest honor, celebrating excellence in the area of psychology and management,” said Dr. Beth Mitchell, SPIM President. . “It is presented to an individual who has developed and implemented practices that have a major impact on people in organizations and on the professions of management.”

Dr. Kelloway added that the award is also a reflection of the strong work and research being done at Saint Mary’s, specifically in the Industrial/Organizational psychology program.

“We have a growing reputation in the I/O program,” he said. “The program has been in existence for over 30 years now and I think we’re more and more recognized for doing research that is relevant to organizations.”

Dr. Kelloway will be presented with the award and honoured by his peers at the SPIM annual conference being held in Atlanta from February 24-28.
