Perspectives on Organizational Fitby Cheri Ostroff (Editor), Timothy A. Judge (Editor)
Launched in 1983 to make scientific contributions to the field, this series has attempted to publish books in cutting-edge theory, research, and theory-driven practice in Industrial and Organizational psychology and related disciplines. Perspectives on Organizational Fit concerns how employees consider their work lives, how well they fit their jobs, the work setting, other people, and what is important and valued in their organizations. The contributors-the most active contributors to this area and some of the best minds in industrial-organizational psychology-address how fit theory is used within selection, recruitment, diversity, leadership, teams and HR decisions. It also explores the integration of different fit perspectives, and clarifies the methodological and statistical issues that have sometimes hindred fit research. The burgeoning interest in fit issues makes this book especially timely. It is comprised of three parts that cover: New directions in fit processes, that encompass both micro and macro levels of analysis, Methodological and statistical issues that pertain to conducting fit research, Conclusions and reflections about the continuing challenges of future research and theory on fit. This book is appropriate for researchers, students and professionals in the areas of human resource management, industrial and organizational psychology, and organizational behavior.
