Overview

This book integrates findings from the empirical literature with the practice literature to identify practical, evidence-based recommendations to prevent and address systemic workplace mistreatment. It discusses the recursive effects of mistreatment in organizations and how individual and organizational, well-being can be enhanced by implementing policies and procedures that address the full impact of mistreatment in organizations. In addition, it presents evidence-based recommendations for how organizations can create a civil workforce, thereby preventing further workplace mistreatment.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In this results-based world, where employers have higher demands and expectations of their workforce, books such as this are a good solid base from which to deliver a realistic approach to address managers' development needs. This book contains good practical examples of workplace mistreatment and is clearly written with case studies and research findings with analytical text, which are very useful for practitioners and in supporting academic work. The structure of the book makes it adaptable as a "quick dip" book for managers looking for best practice solutions, while also having a sound narrative resulting in academic rigor appropriate to research at all levels." (Human Resource Management Journal, January 2011)

"The book will enable readers to identify best practices for resolving mistreatment occurrences, and for creating a civil workforce and preventing recursive mistreatment." (PublicNet, May 2009)
