SHRM Foundation Research 7/30/2014 Permissions Bridging Communication Gaps in HR by Mapping Constructs and Findings Funded: June 2014 Expected Completion: July 2016 Frank A. Bosco, Ph.D., Virginia Commonwealth University, Krista L. Uggerslev, Ph.D., Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, Piers Steel, Ph.D., University of Calgary, Sven Kepes, Ph.D., Virginia Commonwealth University, Michael A. McDaniel, Ph.D., Virginia Commonwealth University, and N. Sriram, Ph.D., Implisci.com Abstract The proposed research represents a giant leap for narrowing the scientist-practitioner gap by linking a database of more than one million HRM research findings to a hierarchical taxonomy of constructs. Through three primary studies using Q-sort methods and factor-analytic analytic techniques, we propose the development of a user interface designed specifically for practitioners that seeks to strike at the heart of the gap: automated empirical summaries that link the practitioner and academic parlance. In addition, we propose to expand an ongoing HRM research curation effort from 1 million to 1.2 million categorized findings by the end of the two-year period.
