Do first impressions last? Why do some people love their work and others not? Will a pay rise motivate everyone to work harder?
Organisational Behaviour: An Introduction will answer these questions and more for your students. In this refreshingly concise introduction, the book's expert authors show how research into human behaviour can be applied in practice, within the workplace.
It assumes no prior work experience and instead asks students to draw on everyday occurences and complete a range of activities to deepen understanding of core topics such as personality, perception and motivation. Innovative skills development exercises and video content demonstrate the relevance of the subject to students' future lives and careers.
