In this important new book, an international range of prominent scholars examine the key psychological issues around organizational change at the individual level, including: •health and well-being •performance and leadership •attitudes and implications for the psychological contract. Analyzing and presenting the impact of organizational change, and possible coping strategies to successfully manage change, the volume is ideal for students and researchers of work and organizational psychology, business and management and HRM.
