The nominations process for the 2012 DOP Awards is now open and will close in September 2012. The ceremony is to be held on the 15th November at the British Medical Association Headquarters, Tavistock Square London WC1H 9JP.
The Awards are a great way to recognise the work of others within our community and rubber stamp careers within Occupational Psychology.
Nominate examples of outstanding work delivered by Chartered Occupational Psychologists; including your team, your colleagues or yourself by clicking on the links below:
Nominate yourself or a colleague for the Practitioner of the Year Award
This is a prestigious award that gives the DOP the chance to recognise, celebrate and publicise some of the excellent work that you carry out with clients. The nomination process is straightforward and can be completed easily by an involved third party (a colleague, or client) or the nominee themselves. Winners of Practitioner of the Year awards in previous years have found the accolade immensely worthwhile; not only have they been thrilled to have their work recognised by their peers, but they have benefitted from the publicity they have received and an enhanced professional reputation.
Nominate a colleague for the Lifetime Achievement Award
The DOP is immensely proud of the history and quality of the work that Occupational Psychologists carry out and the eminence of many of our colleagues. This award allows us to recognise those who, throughout prestigious and active careers have significantly contributed to the growth of the discipline, to organisational growth and development, and ultimately to society at large. We would welcome your ideas about people who you think would be worthy of such an award.
Nominate a colleague for the Academic Contribution to Practice Award
Whilst many DOP members are practitioners, the continued quality of our services is completely reliant on those working in academia who conduct research and formulate the robust approaches that we use in our work with clients. This award recognises an individual who has contributed significantly to the theory and knowledge base, and whose contribution has resulted in better practice and outcomes in organisations.
Apply for the Going Green in the Workplace MSc Dissertation Prize
The DOP Going Green Working Group aims to encourage research on changing employee attitudes and behaviours on environmental issues in the workplace, such as about recycling and energy conservation. To this end, the group offers three awards for relevant completed MSc projects (1st Prize £1,000, two runner-up prizes of £500 each). The awards will be made to those MSc students submitting project outlines for completed MSc dissertation projects which, in the opinion of a panel of distinguished academic and practitioner judges, make the most valuable contribution to changing workplace environmental practices.
Further details on this award will be available shortly.
Apply for the Student Prize for Excellence
The Student Prize for Excellence aims to recognise and encourage first class research by the next generation of occupational psychologists. There are actually three awards (1st Prize £1,000, 2nd Prize £750 and 3rd Prize £500, plus attendance at the annual DOP Conference in January and a contribution towards expenses). Judges award prizes to studies that will make the most valuable contribution to the field of occupational psychology in the 21st century. The awards are made at the conference and the 1st prize winner has a slot in which to present his or her paper.
Submissions may be for a past or current study but, if current, it must have commenced and have at least preliminary findings. Details on how to apply for this award will be posted shortly.
