"This authoritative introduction to organizational psychology and organizational behaviour builds on the foundations of the highly successful first edition. Complete with thoroughly updated explanations of key topics, helpful examples and end-of-chapter summaries, The Psychology of Behaviour at Work provides a critical yet highly accessible overview. Explanations of key research studies, alongside examples of human resources applications and an analysis of cross-cultural issues, lead the reader through theoretical complexities to practical applications." An essential text for psychology students on work and organizational behaviour courses, The Psychology of Behaviour at Work will also be a valuable resource for students in related disciplines and for human resource managers eager to expand their knowledge of this important field.
