Organisational Psychology in Australia and New Zealand, written for use in introductory courses, provides a comprehensive entry point into this dynamic and pervasive field. Written by Australian and New Zealand scholars who have considerable teaching and research experience, the book's emphasis is on both research and practical examples that focus on attitudes, values, and behaviours within the workplace. In addition to providing a thorough introduction to the field of industrial-organisational psychology, this book illustrates the application of psychological theory and research to practical human-resource problems such as staff recruitment and selection, training, performance management, safety management, the development of positive work-related attitudes and work climates, teamwork, and organisational development. Major topics in industrial-organisational psychology are also included.
