In a complex and interconnected world, work and organisations are rapidly changing. This book addresses key emerging issues by adopting an imaginative and innovative approach. Its comprehensive coverage on work and organisations aim to:
- provide understanding of the external forces and institutions that are changing workplaces and organisations;
- examine how organisations are being managed from within and how this reshapes the way individuals and groups relate to each other, whether they be employers, employees, independent professionals or contingent workers; and
- integrate these two perspectives to show how both internal and external forces are interconnected and influence each other.
By combining theory and case studies, the book illuminates how ideas and concepts can be applied to work and organisations in a variety of contexts.
