The Hughes award recognizes scholarship that has made a significant contribution to the task of linking careers research with the broader field of organization studies.
It is the Careers Division's premier award, a way of honoring those who have worked to build bridges between careers and other areas of organizational inquiry. There is no requirement, express or implied, that the recipient of the award be a current or former member of the Careers Division, or of the Academy. This award acknowledges scholars whose work has forged connections between careers and other fields of social inquiry. The award carries, with the permission of his family, the name of Everett Cherrington Hughes. It does so to commemorate his influential role in establishing careers as an object of scholarly study, but more particularly because it rewards the kind of contribution his work embodied. Past recipients of the award are Edgar Schein, Tim Hall, Lotte Bailyn, Michael Arthur, Jeffrey Greenhaus, Barbara Lawrence, Kathy Kram, John van Maanen, and Denise Rousseau.
