Abstract

Organisational Behaviour: Core Concepts and Applications, Fourth Australasian edition, is the ideal resource for a one-semester Organisational Behaviour course. Fourteen concise, relevant and tightly focused chapters, presented in a highly visual manner, are designed to engage rather than overwhelm students.

Numerous case studies and real-world examples throughout the text examine how organisations in the Australian, New Zealand and Asian region are responding to contemporary business issues such as:

• sustainable business practices and ethical considerations

• the gender pay gap

• employee stress and work–life balance

• workforce flexibility and casualisation

• gen Y and the ageing workforce

• skills shortages

• globalisation

• telecommuting

• outsourcing

• diversity in the workplace and managing cross-cultural teams

• the ‘24/7’ nature of contemporary communication technology, including social media.

Complemented by the latest research in the field, this text provides a thorough analysis of contemporary organisational behaviour.
