Current Issues in Work and Organizational Psychology is a series of edited books that reflect the state-of-the-art areas of current and emerging interest in the psychological study of employees, workplaces and organizations. Each volume focuses on a particular topic and consists of chapters contributed by international experts, with an introductory overview written by the editors, who are leading figures in their areas.
