About this Item

This comprehensive textbook uses realistic case examples, self-tests, and plentiful tables and figures to illustrate the principles of workplace behavior. The classic areas of ethics, motivation, conflict, and organizational culture are amply covered, while special attention is paid to such current issues as the effects of new technologies on workers, the pitfalls and opportunities of globalization and multiculturalism, the physical environment of the workplace, and the role perception plays in effective management. A teacher`s manual with lecture notes and a test bank is also available. Contents:- Preface Chap. I : HUMAN BEHAVIOR AT WORK-WITH AN EMPHASIS ON ETHICS 1. Objectives 2.
