Now in its 7th edition this best-selling textbook is regarded as a core textbook for many Work and Business Psychology undergraduate and postgraduate courses as well as being respected by Work Psychology practitioners.

"The aim of this book is to inform the next generation of business and work psychologists and the vital role they play in shaping how organisations operate and enhance overall performance.”, says Dr Iain Coyne (Senior Lecturer in Organisational Psychology, School of Business and Economics, Loughborough University).

“As in previous editions we've aimed to retain a healthy blend of theory, research and engaging examples. There are substantial updates to this edition, with coverage of diversity, technology and internationalisation issues embedded within each chapter, plus new chapters from new authors and new material that reflects current research and debate in the area."
