Combining top-notch research, consulting, and teaching credentials, Frank Landy and Jeff Conte's goal is to provide students with an up-to-date knowledge base that helps them become sophisticated "consumers" when the principles of I-O psychology are applied in the workplace. Students will gain familiarity with I-O psychology concepts, and they will become critical evaluators of contemporary issues and research so that their education carries well past the conclusion of the course.A number of themes recur throughout the text. These themes are repeated to underscore the multi-faceted nature of the work experience. Some key themes that carry through the text are as follows:- Domestic work is becoming increasingly cross-cultural and multinational- Workforces are becoming more diverse- Work teams and groups are as important as individual workers- Work is becoming more complex, technically and organizationallyKey Features include:- Modular approach: The text features self-contained sections within chapters, for maximum teaching flexibility.
