"This volume addresses issues that become prominent after the organization and jobs are designed and after there is an understanding of who will be in the organization and how they will be trained, evaluated, and rewarded. The topics in this volume need to be understood--and in some cases fostered and in other cases controlled or eliminated--if the organization and its employees are to have the opportunity to be effective and succeed. Part I focuses on issues related to relationships with work. Part II moves from a primary concern with the individual employee to more of an organizational perspective and presents chapters dealing with fostering a positive environment and relationships to and at work. Part III draws attention to the issues that organizations need to address to be sustainable. Part IV presents chapters that focus on planning for change and the future. Finally, Part V brings the societal context interface into play"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved).
