The Wake Forest University School of Business will hold the 4th Annual Fit for Business 5K on April 6. The run/walk, planned by School of Business students, will be held on campus; the course begins and ends at Farrell Hall. This year’s race proceeds will benefit Junior Achievement of the Triad.
Junior Achievement of the Triad’s volunteer-delivered, kindergarten through 12th-grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students in our community to dream big and reach their potential. This fall, graduate students in the School of Business were able to experience the impact of Junior Achievement of the Triad first hand as they went into local elementary school classrooms to teach financial literacy.
This event is open to the public, anyone can participate!
Ready to run? Register here. Just by signing up, you’ll receive a race packet, which includes a commemorative t-shirt (while supplies last), a chance to win giveaways, and the post-race celebration. More importantly, by just signing up you are making a positive impact on children and you in our local community!
If you’d like to make a difference without sweating, donations are also accepted. Contact Amanda Horton at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Sean Hannah, J. Tylee Wilson Chair in Business Ethics and professor of management in the School of Business, has been inducted as a Fellow in the Association for Psychological Science (APS) and the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP).
The APS awards fellow status to members who have made sustained outstanding contributions to the science of psychology in the areas of research, teaching, service, and/or application. The organization’s board of directors named Hannah to the board in May 2018. The group has 33,000 members and selects a limited set of top scholars as fellows annually.
Hannah was also selected as a fellow of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP), a professional body of some 7,000 members. SIOP selects about 20 of the world’s top organizational psychology/organizational behavior scholars as fellows each year. They represent top contributors to the range of practice, research, teaching, administration, and service in the field of industrial-organizational psychology. Like APS fellowship, it is a lifelong appointment recognizing a scholar’s contributions to the field across their career.
Hannah is also the senior research associate in the School of Business’s Center for Leadership and Character. Sean is an experienced senior leader with 26 years of experience leading large and complex organizations. His research is published in the premier management and applied psychology journals, which he synthesizes with his practical leadership experience to engage students in the classroom as well as organizations and their practicing leaders to enhance their capabilities.
“Such recognition from major organizational behavior/applied psychology organizations for Sean Hannah’s work is gratifying,” said Michelle Roehm, vice dean for faculty at the School of Business. “His research has had major impacts upon leader and character development, behavioral ethics, crisis leadership and organizational neuroscience.”
This is a guest post from the School of Business:
Wake Forest School of Business Associate Professor Julie Holliday Wayne was named an “extraordinary contributor” to work and family research. At the 2018 Work-Family Researchers Network Conference held June 21-23 in Washington, D.C., the organization recognized the top 60 scholars whose scholarship has made an impact on the field.
The selection came after researchers at Brigham Young University analyzed metrics for researchers in the field including their publishing articles and books, making landmark contributions that shaped the field, dissemination of research to policy makers and the public, providing service to the field, and reputation among work-family scholars.
In her research, Wayne studies how people’s work and personal lives intersect and how this affects their attitudes and behaviors at work as well as that of their spouses. She and her colleagues were among the first to study how work and family can benefit one another (work-family enrichment). Her research examines the meaning of work-life balance, considers factors that promote balance, and shows that employees having greater balance is good business for organizations.
Wayne’s research has been published in leading journals and books as well as in Fast Company, FoxNews.com, Forbes.com, Psychology Today, the Chicago Tribune, and Parents Magazine, among others. She serves on editorial boards and consults and conducts workshops to help organizations maximize their employees’ potential at work and in their personal lives.
“This is an esteemed group of scholars from multiple disciplines from institutions around the world,” said Michelle Roehm, the School’s vice dean of faculty. “We are pleased WFRN has recognized Julie Wayne for this significant achievement based on her years of research and contributions to the field.”
