Wayne Cascio Wins $50,000 Michael R. Losey Human Resource Research Award
Professor’s research on downsizing, turnover, and the financial effects of HR policies honored
SAN DIEGO − The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) today presented the $50,000 Michael R. Losey Human Resource Research Award to Wayne Cascio, Ph.D., at its 62nd Annual Conference and Exposition in San Diego.
The Losey award recognizes human resource professionals or researchers whose contributions significantly advance the field of human resource management. The award acknowledges major research accomplishments and aims to help fund and facilitate future individual contributions to the field.
Dr. Cascio was nominated for his research in three areas:
“Cascio's research examines some of the most important issues facing businesses today, including the impact of downsizing on employers and the causes of employee turnover,” said SHRM President and CEO Laurence G. O’Neil. “The Losey Award acknowledges the role Dr. Cascio’s past and current research will continue to play in the human resources profession.”
The Losey Award winner is chosen by a committee of seven, including representatives from each endowing organization and chaired by Deb Cohen, chief knowledge development and integration officer at SHRM.
The award, endowed with a $1-million gift and established in 2000, was named in honor of former SHRM President and CEO Michael R. Losey, SPHR, CAE. SHRM, the HR Certification Institute, and the SHRM Foundation jointly funded the endowment.
“The Losey Award is named for an individual who tirelessly has promoted the use of HR practices that are informed by established research findings” said Cascio. “I am humbled and honored to know that my research has contributed to his vision.”
