This book brings together the foremost industrial and organizational psychologists and leading practitioners to explore contemporary themes confronting organizations today. Examining the relationship between theory and practice, they show how one enriches the other. For each chapter, the academic author focuses on theory and research, and the practitioner-based author on how this is applied in real work situations. Industrial and Organizational Psychology will be of interest to students, academics and practitioners in occupational psychology, and managers concerned about the human resource. It provides a comprehensive overview of what is practically relevant stemming from the science of industrial and organizational psychology, in what context it is or is not appropriate, and what needs to be done in the future.
