Organizational Behaviour and Work

A critical introduction

Fifth Edition

Fiona M. Wilson

  • Provides a concise introduction to organizational behaviour which is critical yet accessible in its approach
  • Challenges students to re-examine and question traditional views on organizational life and to use their analytical skills to further their own reading and research
  • Draws on a wide range of research, introducing students to the rich and varied contributions that have advanced the study of organizational behavior
  • Reflects the complexity of working life by focusing on key issues such as power, resistance, gender, wellbeing, and race
  • Diverse real-life examples in every chapter, including the surface acting of airline staff, sexual harassment at universities, and digital staff surveillance, demonstrate how the theory of organizational behavior works in practice

New to this Edition:

  • New case studies and examples, on topics like cross-cultural virtual teams, Leicester City Football Club, and size zero in the fashion industry
  • New and increased coverage of ethical behaviour, sexual harassment, well-being, and the impact of social media
  • New diagrams of the most relevant theories aid understanding and facilitate visual learning
  • New questions and additional links to films and novels encourage engagement through reflection on the key issues
