Congratulations to Dave Whiteside: Recipient of the Best Masters Research in Canada Award
We wish to congratulate Dave Whiteside for winning the Best Masters Research in Canada Award from the Human Resources Research Institute, HRPAO.
Dave’s Masters Research Project was entitled, “The Sounds of Silence: The Roles of Overall Fairness and Perceived Organizational Support in Employee Silence.” Using a field sample of 308 employees, Dave was able to increase our understanding of why, how, and when employee silence develops in organizations. Given the significant consequences of employee silence for organizations, Dave’s work has important theoretical contributions as well as practical implications that provide insight into how managers can effectively manage this phenomenon in the workplace. Our warm congratulations to Dave for this impressive piece of research!
