While "The Organization in Crisis" is more focused on the organization, this book aims to look at the changing conditions of work and the challenges these pose for workers. Containing 20 chapters written by a team of North American and European authors, this text aims to combine up-to-date research and practice
Women in management : current research issues by Ronald J Burke( Book )
13 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 398 libraries worldwide
"One of the great social paradoxes of the past two decades involves the massive influx of women into the managerial ranks yet the continuation of inequality in both employment and family responsibilities. Women now represent over 40% of the workforce in most Western countries and will be an even more significant component in the future. Organizations, however, have been slow to capitalise on the potential of their women employees. In particular, they have frequently left undeveloped the human resource provided by their competent, promising female managers. To remain competitive, organizational leaders must recognise the valuable resource that women represent in management and administrative positions and use them effectively. Managers at all levels need to develop the attitudes and expertise to make full use of their female managers and professionals. Research can provide a recognition of these major issues involved and an understanding of how to deal with them, so that managers will become more effective in their roles." "The overall aim of this book is to present a comprehensive overview of the current international research findings concerning women in management. The international group of eminent contributors highlight the major barriers and problems facing managers, discuss the individual and organizational consequences and recommend organizational and legislative changes."--Jacket
Women in management worldwide : progress and prospects by Marilyn Davidson( Book )
12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 253 libraries worldwide
'Excellent', 'Outstanding' and 'Inspirational' were words used to describe the highly acclaimed and award winning first edition of Women in Management Worldwide. Edited by two of the world's most eminent researchers into the role of women in work and management, their findings from around the world confirmed that the glass ceiling was still firmly in place, and there were few women directors or CEOs of large corporations, indeed few in any posts at the top level of private sector organizations. For the second edition of Women in Management Worldwide: Progress and Prospects, Professors Davidson and Burke have assembled over 30 experts replete with facts, figures and analysis, to ensure this expanded and updated edition provides a genuinely cross-cultural global assessment of women in management. This important book examines what has and has not changed, and provides evidence that an understanding of the values, norms and cultural issues bearing on the progress or otherwise of women in organizations is becoming ever more necessary. There is a looming crisis in organizational leadership, with demographic factors and globalization leading to an international talent war. Against that background, continuing bias against women seeking leadership responsibilities means organizations are failing to develop available talent, and when corporations experience economic difficulties the consequences bear disproportionately on women managers. With findings from a broader and more representative range of countries, the editors have arranged this second edition country by country to enable comparisons of the data both between countries and regions and between past, present, and likely futures. Researchers, policy makers, legislators and officials needing an understanding of women's status and progress, as well as those teaching or studying international, cross-cultural and human resources management will need to read this book

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 ( Book )
12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 108 libraries worldwide
According to Ernst & Young, the investment community believes that up to 50 percent of a company's value is intangible - based mostly on corporate reputation. This book contains academic content along with practical contributions, developed by those serving as consultants or working in organizations specialising in corporate reputation and its management or recovery. 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
The fulfilling workplace : the organization's role in achieving individual and organizational health by Ronald J Burke( Book )
12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 86 libraries worldwide
It is very easy for organizations to ignore or overlook the impact of social and commercial change--of increased pressure to deliver profit (above all else) and of transformation in the ways in which we are now working--on the mental health and, consequently, the performance of their employees. And yet there is plenty of evidence that in many workplaces, performance is down, stress is up and professional employees are struggling to balance their home and work lives. This collection, while looking at individuals, places the spotlight on organizational initiatives to support the development of attitudes, values, character and behaviors in employees. The aim of these initiatives is to increase our resilience to those experiences and events which impact on performance. There is a particular focus on managerial and professional jobs where employee discretion and commitment are critical. The Fulfilling Workplace extends the themes developed in early titles in the Psychological and Behavioral Aspects of Risk Series deeper into organizations; to explore the organization's role in coming to grips both with human frailties and toxic workplaces--both destructive to individual and organizational health

Occupational health and safety by Ronald J Burke( Book )
11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 77 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 )
8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 57 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

Effects of 9/11 on individuals and organizations down but not out! Disaster Prevention and Management: An International Journal, Volume 14, Issue 5 ( file )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This paper reviews research findings on the effects of a variety of natural and man-made disasters on those directly and indirectly involved as well as recent studies of the effects of 9/11 on the general public and members of organizations (Fernando,2002; Pyszcynski et al., 2003). In addition, the emergence of a small number of longitudinal case studies of organizations directly affected by the attacks on the World Trade Center (WTC), offers some insights on the ingredients that helped those organizations bounce back. This is timely as this manuscript was being revised following the tsunami disaster
