Professor honored for research on whistleblowing


Bryan R. Stikeleather, assistant professor at the University of South Carolina's Darla Moore School of Business, received the 2017 Greatest Potential Impact on Management Accounting Practice Award.

The award, which recognizes academic research considered most likely to have a significant impact on management accounting and includes a $2,000 stipend, was sponsored by the CGMA designation.

Stikeleather was recognized for his research on the financial and moral motivators that affect internal whistleblowing. His paper, "When Do Employers Benefit From Offering Workers a Financial Reward for Reporting Internal Misconduct?," explores whether employees' pay and their moral convictions influence their whistleblowing behavior and whether these two factors moderate the trade-offs involved for employers to offer financial rewards for internal whistleblowing.
