9780131932128: Psychology and Work Today (9th Edition)

An invaluable preparatory guide for entering today’s global business and industrial world, this informative, sophisticated, and entertaining book informs readers about the nature of work in modern society. Focusing on the practical and applied knowledge, it shows how industrial-organizational psychology directly influence our lives as job applicants, trainees, employees, managers, and consumers. Topics include human resource development (employee selection, psychological testing, performance appraisal, and training); leadership, motivation, job satisfaction, and job involvement; working conditions, safety, violence, and health in the workplace; and engineering and consumer psychology. Hot-button issues such as internet addiction and social isolation, discrimination based on genetic testing, ethnic harassment, and executive coaching are discussed and debated. An excellent handbook for all human resource employees, as well as managers, executives, and others responsible for hiring personnel.
