Division of Occupational Psychology


DOP Awards 2017

Awards Now open!

The DOP’s Awards and Recognition ceremony now takes place within the Division’s Annual Conference. It is the chosen forum to highlight the achievements of our members and provides an excellent opportunity to support fully the winners of the awards.

The Division focuses on the five types of awards listed: Practitioner of the Year, Lifetime Achievement, Academic Contribution to Practice, Student Prizes for Excellence and the Volunteer of the Year. These awards cut across the various stages of an occupational psychologist’s career, i.e. student, early, established, late, and when ready, volunteering with the Division.

The conference allows the celebration of our practice, making it the ideal place to highlight to a wide audience the research and interventions undertaken by the winners. In acknowledging the winners during the conference, we hope this will inspire other students, practitioners or academics to consider applying for the awards the following year.

We hope also that the event might encourage other members to work with the individuals who received the awards, or perhaps pursue similar research or interventions.

A conference environment is one that allows learning to continue and helps to build our expertise. It is thus a great opportunity to receive an award before so many of your peers.

So, please feel free to nominate a colleague, a mentor, a mentee, a lecturer, a student, or a volunteer. You can also self-nominate.

The Division abounds in talent and loves recognising and celebrating the scientific rigour of the profession, as well as the varied and valued contributions that arise from what we do. See you in January 2018!

We actively promote excellence across the profession through our annual awards scheme.

The awards are administered by the Division's Awards and Recognition Working Group.
