This book deals with two key questions. First, is there a firm scientific basis for the major applications of psychology in organizations? Second, does the practice of psychology in organizations contribute in any meaningful way to psychological research? This text attempts to answer these questions by describing some of the unique ways in which Industrial/Organizational (I/O) psychologists integrate science and practice in applying psychology in organizations. The editors of this volume believe that there is great potential for the effective interplay of science and practice in I/O psychology. Aware, however, that much work must still be done before a truly effective integration can be achieved and maintained, they have created a text that offers specific suggestions for improvement as well as many examples of successful integration. Psychology in Organizations explores the unique relationship between science and practice within industrial/organizational psychology. The contributors seek to answer two main questions: * Is there a firm scientific basis for the major applications of psychology in organizations? * Does the practice of psychology in organizations contribute in any meaningful way to psychological research? After an initial examination of the industrial/organizational psychologist as a scientist and practitioner, Psychology in Organizations looks at specific roles played in such issues as job performance and productivity, sexual harassment, drug abuse, and drug testing. A final chapter looks at both the past and future of the field and suggests future applications.

The study and practice of organizational psychology is having a growing impact on all our lives and it raises a multitude of fascinating and substantial questions. How does human psychology make organizational behavior possible? How does belonging to organizations affect the way we think, feel and behave? And how is an organization's purpose, performance and culture affected by the individuals and groups within it? Psychology in Organizations addresses these questions by presenting an approach to organizational psychology that draws upon the large body of research that has been informed by social identity and self-categorization theories. In contrast to the individualism that has come to dominate the study of organizations, this approach identifies and explains the distinctive forms of organizational behavior associated with people's membership in-groups and teams. The importance and practical implications of the social identity approach are underlined in a text which provides a review and integrated theoretical treatment of core organization topics - including leadership, motivation, communication, decision-making, negotiation, power, productivity, and industrial protest.

The last two decades have seen an explosive increase in the ethnic diversity of the workforce, growth in international business, and the emergence of many more multinational companies. The potential for problems as companies operate across borders and managers manage in countries which have different values, norms and cultural behaviors is great. By looking at organizational psychology in a cross-cultural context, we can gain an understanding of the challenges facing organizations and business today. This text breaks new ground in introducing organizational psychology from a cross cultural perspective. It provides a foundational overview of the current major theories in organizational psychology, and illuminates the impact of cultural differences on organizational dynamics. It also makes available specific research concerning our current understandings of how these dynamics play out in particular regions and countries, such as autocratic versus democratic leadership styles in Africa and Europe or conflict management in Asia. The volume offers a welcome introduction to the topic to those in industrial/organizational psychology, international relations and management, and international business/MBA programs focusing on international issues.

'This volume is essential reading for those who want to keep abreast of cutting edge research on the role and sources of trust in organizations. The introductory chapters by Nooteboom and Six make conceptual strides by examining the interface between cognitive theory and different forms of trust. The detailed case studies and quantitative analyses of trust in organizational and team contexts fill an important gap in the empirical literature on trust. Overall the volume does a superb job of outlining a research programme addressed to theorists concerned with problems of cognition, trust, power and reciprocity in organizational settings.' - Edward Lorenz, Centre d'Etudes de l'Emploi, France 'This is an important and timely book. During the last ten years there has been growing recognition of the role of trust in promoting the economic performance of firms, organizations and societies, but much of the research has been of a purely theoretical nature. Now two leading proponents of the new approach have collaborated to provide empirical confirmation of key hypotheses. This collection of highly original studies by Dutch and French researchers highlights the importance of leadership and other social processes in engineering trust within organizations. It is essential reading for economists, sociologists, psychologists, and students of management and organization interested in this field.' - Mark Casson, University of Reading, UK Taking an interdisciplinary approach, this volume focuses on the trust processes between people within organizations, with an emphasis on empirical studies.

In the context of global economic recession, fear has become institutionalized in many organizations, both in the private and public sectors. Board directors are under pressure from shareholders, senior executives are attempting to maintain sales in a nervous market and many people are concerned about job security and maintaining their living standards. This book shows how fear manifests itself in large organizations, how it impacts on the workforce and how by reducing our willingness to take risks and to innovate, it can inhibit economic growth and innovation, at both an individual and corporate level. The Psychology of Fear in Organizations examines the psychological barriers to innovation and presents initiatives to loosen the paralysis caused by the economic downturn.

This book assembles state-of-the-art thinking on the internationalization of the curriculum of training centers in I/O and Work Psychology. The experts contributing chapters share their thoughts on the knowledge and skills that students must master in the 21st century, as well as their research on how we can develop students to be globally perceptive, culturally competent working professionals. Chapters cover a full range of topics such as: the scope of subject matter and content, learning objectives and outcomes, global competencies, co-curricular activities, experiential learning and the tacit curriculum, while curriculum development must stem from the philosophy of each institution, these philosophies may diverge in focus (e.g. science versus practice) and outcomes (e.g. jobs versus mastery). Therefore, the goal of the book is not to prescribe a particular curriculum, but rather to provide insight on possible curriculum elements that may be customized for use by training institutions.
