Their paper, "Employees' Subjective Valuations of Their Stock Options: Evidence on the Distribution of Valuations and the Use of Simple Anchors," explores the benefits of educating employees on understanding the value of employee stock options as part of compensation.

The award, sponsored by the AICPA and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, recognizes academic research most likely to have a significant impact on management accounting. Eligible papers must have been published within the previous five years and submitted by the authors or nominated by peers.
