The John Bratton Prize for Organizational Behaviour

Palgrave Macmillan is pleased to announce the launch of the John Bratton Prize for Organizational Behaviour.

This new award is designed to celebrate students’ achievements in the field of Organizational Behaviour and will be awarded for outstanding academic performance.

The prize will be made available to business departments who have adopted Work and Organizational Behaviour as their core text.

How to take part in the prize

The prize recipient should be chosen by your department, and must be a first year OB student or an MBA student who the department believes has achieved notable academic success in the field. Lecturers interested in participating in the prize should consult with their faculty to decide the means by which the winner will be selected.

The prize will consist of £50 of books from the Palgrave Macmillan catalogue and a prize certificate to celebrate the student’s achievement.

The prize can be awarded by each institution once a year in either the first or second semester, as decided by the department.

Once you’ve selected your winner…

Once your department has selected a winning student please complete the prize form available here.

Please ensure you specify whether you’d like the student to be contacted directly by Palgrave Macmillan, or whether you’d prefer to let them know yourselves.

Once we have received your nomination we will send either the department or the winner (depending on whether you would like to present the prize yourself) a letter of notification and a catalogue. The winner or department will be asked to choose books from the Palgrave Business & Management catalogue to the value of £50. The certificate and selected books can either be sent directly to the student, or posted to the department for presentation.

Should you wish to present the prize on a specific date you should ensure the prize entry form is submitted at least a month in advance to allow time for processing and postage.
