This edited volume in SIOP's Organizational Frontiers Series presents the current thinking and research on the important area of motivation Work Motivation is a central issue in industrial organizational psychology, human resource management and organizational behavior. In this volume the editors and authors show that motivation must be seen as a multi-level phenomenon where individual, group, organizational and cultural variables must be considered to truly understand it. The book adopts an overall framework that encompasses "internal"--from the person--forces and "external"-from the immediate and more distant environment--forces. It is destined to challenge scholars of organizations to give renewed emphasis and attention to advancing our understanding of motivation in work situations. [from publisher web site]
