Glossary
Index


This excellent, thought-provoking book builds upon the strengths of the first edition and the result is comprehensive, well-written and full of interest. Anna Sutton captures the nuances and complexity of psychological theory and clearly demonstrates how it is relevant in today’s workplace. Essential reading for students and practitioners alike! – Mark Crowder, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
Work Psychology in Action uses case studies that reflect contemporary challenges to enable students to connect theory to the issues that are likely to concern them. Readers will benefit from the practical focus, which shows how core areas of practice such as recruitment, selection processes and organisational development are applied in the real world. These highlight the challenges that practitioners encounter when working with clients, and demonstrate the value of rigorous methods. – Andrew Clements, Coventry University, UK
The second edition of Anna Sutton’s ‘Work Psychology in Action’ does not disappoint. In addition to detailed coverage of the basic principles of work psychology, it discusses more topical issues such as climate change, gamification and the gig economy, while case studies help to bring the topics to life. This book will be a valuable resource for psychology and business students alike. – Sheena Johnson, University of Manchester, UK
This is my 'go-to' text for students wanting to learn more about work psychology. It covers all the core areas but does so succinctly drawing on recent and engaging research. The case studies are excellent at bringing theory to life clearly showcasing how work psychology is used in practice. – Gemma Pike, University of the West of England, UK.
