SHRM, SIOP and their foundations to award organizations that are improving HR management practices

The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), along with their foundations, announced Amazon and PepsiCo as the winners of the 2018 Human Resource Management (HRM) Impact Award for their programs that affect internal and global hiring needs.

The HRM Impact Award is an international honor given by SIOP, SHRM, the SHRM Foundation, and the SIOP Foundation that recognizes organizations with outstanding evidence-based HR management practices. The award also promotes HR practices and initiatives that have been measured and successful through evidence-based, data-driven analyses.

PepsiCo is being awarded a 2018 HRM Impact Award for its project, “PepsiCo’s Global Leadership Assessment & Development (LeAD) Program.” The program has helped the company identify and develop internal talent, from early career to senior executives, as well as focus on the future capabilities needed for success.

The LeAD architecture has enabled PepsiCo to deliver on the career promise it has made to its people through the implementation of a consistent, rigorous, future-focused assessment and development model,” said Cynthia Trudell, Chief Human Resources Officer and Executive ice President of Human Resources at PepsiCo, Inc. from April 2011 to October 2017.

Amazon’s winning project, “Simulation Strategy to Scale and Preserve the Candidate Experience” was designed to maintain a high hiring bar that would deliver innovative simulation-focused assessments for a wide variety of roles. The program helped the company surpass previous unmatched hiring needs while also preserving the candidate experience.

“We continue to aspire to be Earth’s most customer-centric company, and we recognize this to be no small or easy challenge,” explained Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon. “We know there is much we can do better, and we find tremendous energy in the many challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.”

Anthem was awarded the 2018 HRM Impact Award Honorable Mention for their project, “Driving Workforce Productivity with People Analytics.”

PepsiCo will receive its award at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel on Friday, Oct. 19 during SIOP’s Leading Edge Consortium, “High Potential: Identifying, Developing, and Retaining Future Leaders” while Amazon will receive its award at the 34th Annual SIOP Conference at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in April 2019.
