The Future of Organizations: Workplace Issues and Practices Hardback
Part of the 21st Century Business Management series
This new book, The Future of Organizations: Workplace Issues and Practices, provides some valuable insights into how organizations are changing and evolving and how human resource personnel, employers, and employees are reacting to these emerging workplace transitions.
Today's successful organizations must be learning organizations in that they must keep abreast and change with the new workplace dynamics.
There are many new changes in today's organizations.
These include: Younger generations of workers who don't place much value on loyalty toward organizations in comparison to baby boomers and those who believe more in working smarter than working harder.
Young entrepreneurs who are changing the face of the workplace, creating boundaryless, protean careers.
New concepts of flat structure for employers that are in demand for today's business, especially today's digital environment.
Today's highly industrialized global service economy that requires new skills and new realities, such as multitasking, working 24x7, etc. Many of these concepts are new and challenging for employers and employees, and there is very little qualitative and quantitative research available that has practical implications for policymakers and employers/leaders.
This book helps to fill the gap. The volume explores the upcoming challenges and opportunities for employees and employers, particularly in orientation of service organizations in the 21st century.
This book provides insights for implications and examines old theories of organizations in the light of changing concepts as well as emerging concepts.
It explores many of these trends in conjunction with a focus on work-life balance, globalization, redefining leadership, contingent work force, stress management, telecommuting, work force diversity, ergonomics, life satisfaction/subjective well being, and more.
The volume will be of great use and interest for human research professionals and researchers, managers, workplace policymakers, entrepreneurs and others in many different fields.
