Westminster Psychology lecturer publishes book on the psychology of work

Psychology 2 March 2015

Westminster lecturer Chantal Gautier's new book 'The Psychology of Work: Insights into Successful Working Practices' integrates psychological theory with personal narrative from global industry leaders, as well as those entering the workforce, to offer tangible insights into the real world of work.

It is ideal for students, professionals and anyone with an interest in how successful organisations operate. It charts the development of the field of organisational psychology and provides the key theoretical frameworks. Crucially, it explores how these can be utilised to enhance organisational culture, and why this is so relevant and important in the modern workplace.

Through the inclusion of interviews with students, The Psychology of Work reveals what the future workforce expects of the organisations that they are going into and encourages students reading the book to reflect on what kind of leaders they would like to be. The book is also a valuable resource to support professionals and practitioners, highlighting current working practices and the need for change, offering practical guidance on how to bring the 'humane' back into organisational life.

The book is published by Kogan Page and will be released 3 March 2015. You can pre-order from the publisher and save 20% with the discount code POWL20. Enter the code when prompted at the checkout. This offer expires 31 March 2015.
