Louisville, Kentucky - Dr. Shinhee Jeong has been named a winner of the Cutting Edge Award of the Academy of Human Resource Development (AHRD), for her work on the paper titled, “The Multi-Level Effects of HR Practices and Paternalistic Leadership on Organizational Commitment,” written with collaborators Dr. Dae Seok Chai from Colorado State University and Baek-kyoo Joo of Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania.

The Cutting Edge Award is presented to the authors of outstanding scholarly papers published in the annual Conference Proceedings of the Academy of Human Resource Development for the same year.  The papers must contribute new knowledge to the HRD profession, provide the theoretical and/or practical importance of the problem, use appropriate approaches and/or methods, justification of the conclusions and quality of reporting.

“This is my second-time receiving this honorable award at the AHRD. I believe these award-winning achievements should make LSU more visible in the field of HRD at the international level. My next plan is to encourage my students to be more involved in research and the academic communities.”

AHRD presented the award to Dr. Shinhee Jeong and her collaborators at the 26th Annual AHRD Conference in the Americas keynote session on Thursday, February 14, 2019.

The 26th AHRD annual conference included leading scholars and practitioners reporting their cutting-edge research and theorizing. The program comprised of blind, peer-reviewed submissions that offer a diverse range of topics, perspectives, and research paradigms. In addition, the conference included several types of non-refereed sessions that provide excellent opportunities for bringing together conference participants to engage in generative learning through both formal and informal interactions about topics of mutual interest. AHRD is an inclusive organization and invites all those who are interested in the field, no matter where they are on their scholarly journey.

Dr. Shinhee Jeong received her PhD from Texas A&M University (TAMU) in Human Resource Development. Her focal scholarly interest is how to effectively share tacit/explicit knowledge and create new knowledge in the workplace. Her specific areas of research revolve around leadership, interpersonal/social relationships, informal learning, and organizational knowledge creation. Additionally, she has a strong background in quantitative methodology including measurement validation and multi-level/multi-group analyses.
