In Work Stress and Coping the authors provide an historical account of workplace stress, taking a broad approach by integrating the macro forces impacting the micro, and highlighting what the research in the field tells us about the changing nature of work so that individuals and organisations can create more liveable working environments.
With an emphasis on the growing influence of globalization, the book explores the forces of change within contemporary societies and assesses how they have fundamentally changed the nature of work and the direction of research into stress and coping.
Capturing the history, context, critique and transformation of theory into practice, the authors offer an insight into how managers and businesses have failed, the effects this has had on how work is experienced, the evolution and relevance of existing theories and suggest alternative methods and future directions.
Suitable reading for students of HRM, Organisational Behaviour and Occupational Psychology.
