Combining top-notch research, consulting, and teaching credentials, Frank Landy and Jeff Conte’s goal is to provide students with an up-to-date knowledge base that helps them become sophisticated "consumers" when the principles of I-O psychology are applied in the workplace. Students will gain familiarity with I-O psychology concepts, and become critical evaluators of contemporary issues and research allowing their education to carry them well past the conclusion of the course. A number of themes recur throughout the text to underscore the multi-faceted nature of the work experience. Some key themes that carry through the text are the increase in cross-cultural and multinational increase in domestic work, the diversification of the workforces, the raised importance of groups in as opposed to individual workers, and the increasing complexity of the technical and organizational aspects of work. Key features: -Modular approach: The text features self-contained sections within chapters, for maximum teaching flexibility. Each module ends with point summaries and key terms -Cutting-edge topics and research coverage: Includes the Five Factor Theory of Personality, the Big Eight theory of competencies, emotional intelligence, culture and emotions, genetics and job satisfaction, achieving balance between work and non-work, stress and violence, organizational citizenship, measuring motivation, integrity testing, entrepreneurship, computer-based assessment, counterproductive work performance, male vs. female leaders, cross cultural teams, bullying, and more -Emphasis on critical thinking: supplementary critical thinking questions present situations and ask students to apply the principles and concepts they've learned in that section -Case Studies and Boxes provide concrete examples of the issues involved in work and behavior in various applied settings, for example the role of I-O Psychology in the Iraq War and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina -Clear, articulate explanations: The clear prose and interesting examples make the book accessible to a wide range of students -Ancillaries include: Instructor's Manual, Test Bank, Study Guide, Power Point Slides; Web site
