`How should organizations manage their people in a globalized business environment? Psychologists have a lot more to offer than the latest management fad. Buy this Handbook, and get a clear but detailed view of their sound and evidence-based solutions' - Peter Herriot (CSA Empower)

These landmark publications provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of the entire field of Industrial, Work, and Organizational (IWO) Psychology. As a major new two-volume Handbook it will be essential reading for anyone interested in the latest cutting-edge thinking in the field. It will be an indispensable source for all professionals, researchers and students in work psychology, and for any researcher or student working in related areas who requires an up-to-date overview of this flourishing discipline.

Each of the 41 chapters has been written by one or more of the leading researchers in the world in each particular field, to provide both an overview of current research and a description of future trends. The chapters are designed to relate to, and give comprehensive coverage of, recommended teaching syllabi in North America, Europe, Austral-Asia, and the rest of the world as laid down by professional bodies in the field (SIOP, EAWOP, BPS, etc). The Handbook of Industrial, Work and Organizational Psychology is therefore intended as a comprehensive, authoritative, and globally-focussed state-of-the-art review of Industrial/Organizational and Work and Organizational Psychology. Each chapter is fully referenced and includes a short biography of the author(s).

"This two-volume set integrates contributions from organizational scholars worldwide, and, thus, truly is an evolutionary development in the field of applied psychology. It is elitist in the best sense of the term."
