Description


Organizational change is a reality of 21st-century working life, but what psychological effects does it have on individual workers, and what coping strategies can be used to mediate its impact? In today's turbulent work and career environment, employees are required not only to accept changes as passive recipients, but to proactively initiate changes and demonstrate attitudes, behaviours and skills valued by current employers. As a result, organizational psychologists, both researchers and practitioners, have had to acknowledge and understand the myriad of challenges faced by employees as a result of organizational change.

In this important new book, an international range of prominent scholars examine the key psychological issues around organizational change at the individual level, including:

health and well-being

stress and emotional regulation

performance and leadership

attitudes and implications for the psychological contract

Analyzing and presenting the impact of organizational change, and possible coping strategies to successfully manage change, the volume is ideal for students and researchers of work and organizational psychology, business and management and HRM.
