Leadership and management in the 21st century : business challenges of the future by Cary L Cooper( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Business has changed dramatically over the last two decades: Globalization, cross-national strategic alliances and mergers, privatizations, outsourcing, information technology innovations, and the increasing short term contract culture have all influenced this. In turn, the role of managers has had to adapt and change. The organizations they work in have changed in size and organizational structure. Their management style has had to adapt, as the workforce they manage has become more dispersed and come to live in a state of permanent job insecurity. Moreover, the demands placed on managers by change seem a prerequisite, as business continues to develop as rapidly as ever. This volume brings together the thoughts of leading figures from industry, academia, the public sector, professional bodies, and the media, to reflect on what the twenty-first century may mean for businesses and their leaders. The contributors examine what trends the mark the global economy in the twenty-first century, how this will affect businesses, and what will be required in terms of leadership and management to manage effectively? In doing so they cover such topics as leadership, corporate culture, organizat

Preventing stress, improving productivity : European case studies in the workplace by Cary L Cooper( Book )

This is followed by eleven chapters each concentrating on examples of best practice from a different European country with one case study analysed in detail
Healthy and productive work : an international perspective by Lawrence R Murphy( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "enterprise culture" of the 1980s helped transform economies of Western Europe, but left behind a legacy of stress, both for managers and shop floor workers. The cost to business is seen in absenteeism, reduced productivity, compensation claims, health insurance and direct medical costs, which in the US cost approximately 150 billion a year. Stress related absences are about ten times more costly in the UK than all industrial relations disputes put together, and sickness absence, premature death and retirement due to alcoholism costs a staggering £2 billion a year. The future is likely to get worse. As the pace of change increases and competition intensifies, organizations will restructure and the pressure on individual workers will increase. They can expect to feel less in control and more insecure in their work. This major work includes a collection of good practice examples and has been drawn together in a structured way to allow clear comparisons of a number of companies in the USA and Europe, ranging from the US Air Force, to an international pharmaceutical company (Zeneca), and a high-powered international retailer
Risky business : psychological, physical and financial costs of high risk behavior in organizations by Ronald J Burke( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the financial and psychological costs of risky behavior in business to the individuals concerned and their organizations?

The authors then look at their implications to employee and organizational health within the context of the workplace environment; an environment that is often synonymous with psychological demands, stress, long hours, overwork and shortages of staff or

Corporate reputation : managing opportunities and threats by Ronald J Burke( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increasing media scrutiny, global coverage and communication via the internet means corporate reputation can be damaged quickly, and failing to successfully address challenges to corporate reputation has consequences. Companies generally suffer almost ten times the financial loss from damaged reputations than from whatever fines may be imposed. According to Ernst & Young, the investment community believes up to 50 percent of a company's value is intangible - based mostly on corporate reputation. So recognizing potential threats, or anticipating risks, emerges as a critical organizational competence. Organizations can regain lost reputations, but recovery takes a long time. Corporate Reputation contains both academic content along with practical contributions, developed by those serving as consultants or working in organizations in the area of corporate reputation and its management or recovery. It covers: why corporate reputation matters, the increase in reputation loss, threats to corporate reputation, monitoring reputation threats online and offline, the key role of leadership in reputation recovery, and making corporate reputation immune from threats. Any book that is going to do justice to a subject that is so complex and intangible needs imagination, depth and range, and this is exactly what the contributors bring with them
Occupational health and safety by Ronald J Burke( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Workplace accidents and errors cost organizations hundreds of billions of dollars each year, and the injured workers and their families endure considerable financial and emotional suffering. It's obvious that increasing employee health and safety pays. The accumulating evidence shows that investing in occupational health and safety results in improved financial and social responsibility performance. There are extensive country differences and wide occupational differences in the incidence of accidents and errors. The International Labour Organization (ILO) estimates that every year there are 2.2 million fatal and 270 million non-fatal accidents or occupational diseases worldwide. Occupational Health and Safety looks at the research into what causes accidents and errors in the workplace. In line with other titles in the series, Occupational Health and Safety emphasizes the psychological and behavioral aspects of risk in organizations. It highlights how organizations differ in their health and safety performance, with case studies throughout and best practices. Key elements focus on: employee selection and training, fostering employee understanding, participation and engagement in health and safety matters, developing a health and safety culture at organizational and group/work unit levels, communicating and reinforcing safe workplace practices and bench-marking one's organization against the industry leaders. The contributors to this volume come from various countries, reflecting unique interest and knowledge in particular areas

Human frailties : wrong choices on the drive to success by Ronald J Burke( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every day we hear stories about the consequences of human frailties for individuals, their families, friends, and organizations. These involve alcohol and drug addiction and other harmful lifestyle choices, and all kinds of unethical and illegal behaviour, including bribery and corruption, price fixing, theft and fraud, sexual harassment and abuse of authority, fiddling expenses and cheating at sport and in exams. Efforts to teach ethical behaviour in business schools make little difference. The media who report others' frailties are themselves unethical and engage in illegal conduct. This book
Advances in mergers and acquisitions( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

What makes the Advances in Mergers and Acquisitions series stand out is its focus on all three characteristics that make up this research field studies from scholars in different countries, with different research questions, relying on different theoretical perspectives. Such a broad, and inclusive, approach to mergers and acquisitions is not easily replicated in academic journals, with much narrower mandates and metrics. The collections published each year provide cutting edge ideas by leading scholars on a global scale. Doing so not only broadens the questions being studied, but also helps researchers consider the inter-relationships among different perspectives. In the final analysis, the best way to build understanding around a topic as diffuse as mergers and acquisitions is to be both integrative, and expansive, in choice of research questions and theoretical underpinnings. Advances in Mergers and Acquisitions offers this unique perspective, not easily found elsewhere, that will help scholars think about mergers and acquisitions in new ways, building our knowledge base on this critical topic
