Description

"Burnout", comparable worth, job evaluation, employee theft, lie detectors, women in management, mentors, noverbal communication and ethical problems are among the new and updated topics covered in the second edition of this popular text. Professor Muchinsky's lively, readable book takes a comprehensive and integrated view of industrial and organizational psychology, exploring both the emergence and development of the field. Psychology Applied to Work is written for the introductory student. Each chapter contains two or more anecdotes or vignettes based on actual experiences of people in industry, and concludes with a case study providing examples and applications of the text material. The book describes how and when some principles work, and why others don't. Photographs, tables, figures and cartoons elucidate theoretical concepts described in the book.show more
