By fusing topics from the related areas of organizational behaviour and human resource management, this brand new innovative textbook takes a unique, integrated and dynamic approach to the study of how work and people are organized, providing a deep insight into the interconnectedness of these important and complementary areas. Putting the ‘human’ at the centre of human resource management and organizational behaviour, People, Management and Organization considers organizations as groups of people.

The accessible student-centred focus, with a concise and jargon-free writing style, and wide range of learning features makes People, Management and Organization an ideal course text for students at all levels. With a strong applied orientation, this book will help you, as future managers or HR practitioners, to understand underlying principles and apply them to your own work lives. 

Key features include:

·         Focus on the reality of work: in addition to theoretical discussions, the book guides you to apply theories to the workplace. A comprehensive suite of pedagogical features and activities; from short case studies to web resources and video interviews with practitioners, managers and consultants, brings the content to life and makes the link from theory to practice that bit easier.

·         An emphasis on skills development: the textbook builds experience and expertise in transferrable skills allowing you to critique and apply knowledge in current or future workplaces, thus enhancing your employability.

·         An international outlook: the book recognises the increasingly globalized business world and the importance of cultural and national differences. Many international examples are embedded in the text alongside specific activities, extended discussions or case studies based in different countries. 

Dr Anna Sutton is Senior Lecturer in Organisational Psychology at the University of Waikato, New Zealand and was formerly Senior Lecturer in Occupational Psychology at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. She is also the author of the textbook, Work Psychology in Action (Palgrave, 2015).
