Summary: "The purpose of this handbook is to present the types of issues that industrial and organizational psychologists study, the questions they pursue, and the interventions they implement. We hope that the approach of this handbook, as detailed in the remainder of this introduction, presents a more elaborate rationale for the need for another handbook. Volume 2 is titled Selecting and Developing Members for the Organization. This volume addresses issues that come into play when the organization's design and plans have been completed and implemented and it becomes necessary to staff the organization. How will members be selected for the organization, and what issues must one consider as these members become part of it? Part I provides the foundations of selection and development. Part II focuses on specific selection strategies and issues that address particular means for selecting members of the organization. Part III is concerned with evaluating individuals and performance, particularly with specific emphasis on job-related criteria as determined from the work analysis. Part IV examines issues pertaining to evaluating systems, which is concerned with how well the organization does with respect to its hiring system and processes in general. Part V focuses on developing members"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved).
