Summary

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 behaviours 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 Behavioural 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. Chapters examine work engagement, flow in the workplace, narcissism, discrimination, health and safety, ethical values and corporate wellness programs among other topics.
