March 7, 2019 by Anonymous

Congratulations to CIRHR professor Greg Distelhost, whose article, “Does lean improve labor standards? Management and social performance in the Nike supply chain” with Jens Hainmueller and Richard M. Locke (2016, Management Science), is a Distinguished Winner of the Second IACMR-RRBM Award for Responsible Research.  

The award, co-sponsored by the Community for Responsible Research in Management and the International Association for Chinese Management Research, recognizes “excellent scholarship that focuses on important issues for business and society using sound research methods with credible results.” 

RRBM’s seven Principles of Responsible Science—service to society; stakeholder involvement; impact on stakeholders; valuing both basic and applied contributions; valuing plurality and multidisciplinary collaboration; sound methodology; and broad dissemination—guide the selection of recognized papers, along with credibility and usefulness.  

Professor Distelhorst’s award winning research was recently profiled in SupplyChainBrain, in a discussion of how to prevent the mistreatment of workers in global supply chains.
