Pittsburgh, 1.22.13 – Matthew O’Connell, Ph.D., Executive Vice President and co-founder at Select International, has just received Fellow status within SIOP (Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology). This prestigious honor is in recognition of outstanding accomplishments in the field and awarded to only a few select recipients.

The contributions of nominees for Fellow are evaluated in terms of impact on I-O Psychology and its advancement, and their contribution to the Mission of the Society, in these key areas:
-Science Driven Results — dedicated to the scientific method and a foundation in psychology as the basis for the practice, education, and research of I-O psychology.
-Service — dedicated to improving the effectiveness of organizations and the well-being of individuals in work settings.
-Excellence — dedicated to excellence in all that our members do, including practice, research and education.
-Integrity — dedicated to honesty, integrity, and the pursuit of the highest ethical standards.
