Product description

Organizational Behaviour: People, Process, Work and Human Resource Management bridges the gap between OB and HRM, with an emphasis on intercultural and cross cultural perspectives of organizational development, talent management, and leadership. Stephen Perkins and Raisa Arvinen-Muondo present a clearly laid out and no nonsense book for students and professionals alike. Through a critical analysis of existing literature and case studies, the contributors cover such topics as corporate governance, ethical business practices, employee morale and motivation, performance management, corporate politics and conflict resolution, workplace diversity, creativity, and change management - all within the framework of current global employment standards and best practices. Grounded in observable experience, Organizational Behaviour brings students and professionals beyond the abstract to an understanding of OB and HRM in practice, elucidating the interrelated nature of these fields that are more often than not treated separately.
