9780618526406: Industrial/Organizational Psychology: Understanding the Workplace

This student-friendly textbook, written by a leading researcher at one of the nation's top I/O programs, is unique in its emphasis on how I/O psychologists are trained; its social/contextual approach to performance appraisal; and the strength of its pedagogy, including "practitioner forums." This edition features full integration of changes and events that are currently taking place in today's work environments. Industrial/Organizational Psychology focuses on the psychology of the workforce, employee health and well-being, organizational behavior, motivation, human resources, and various dynamics of work interaction. Levy's book has been well received by reviewers for its applied approach and for the author's personal, direct, and casual tone, which sets it apart in the field.
