This is a groundbreaking volume thatÂ provides informed, balanced yet frank discussion of US workplace diversity and diversity resistance issues. The chapters in this book put a name on behaviors and practices that have existed in the workplace for a long time, yet until recently have had no name. Further, the majority of the chapters innovatively link existing psychological and organizational factors such as fear, uncertainty, power, emotions, and organizational change and development. The book's editors and authors emphasize that we need to know more about diversity resistance, both in overt and covert forms. To guide us, we can draw on existing research and practice literature that have both theoretical and empirical depth.
This timely volume's first chapter deconstructs the growing prevalence of hangmen's nooses as a manifestation of resistance to diversity that is visibly overt, hostile, and interpersonal.

This ethics casebook for industrial/organizational psychology is a substantially revised and updated version of a book first published by the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology in 1985. Since then, I/O psychology has become a far more complex, technically advanced and widely used discipline, and is practiced in an increasingly litigious environment. This casebook reflects those new realities and is intended to stimulate the process of thinking ethically about I/O psychology. "The Ethical Practice of Psychology in Organziations" provides a wide variety of examples of the kinds of circumstances that both practitioners and researchers can and do encounter. The cases, based on real-life examples, cover dilemmas in the areas of personnel selection, organizational diagnosis and intervention, managing consulting relationships, research and academic issues, professional training and certification, billing and marketing, and the ethics of professional behaviour. Each case is presented in a four-tier format that (1) describes a problem, (2) cites the relevant sections of the APA Ethics Code Standards, (3) interprets the case and (4) discusses implications.
Evaluating and making decisions about other people are key aspects of doing business, especially for managers and human resource professionals. Industrial and organizational psychologists devise systematic methods to remove human errors in judgment, such as biases and stereotypes. However many decisions about people are not made by experts using standard procedures. Even when they are, human judgment is unavoidable.
This book examines the social psychological dynamics of person perception that underlie how people evaluate others in organizations. It contains original articles from leading experts in social, industrial, and organizational psychology. The book begins by examining basic principles and processes of social cognition and person perception, such as schemas, stereotypes, automatic/mindless information processing, the perceiver's motivation and affect, and situational conditions. It then applies these ideas to key areas of business operations.
Helping readers understand and develop ways to improve the way people assess and make decisions about others, this book: * covers the interview, executive promotion decisions, and assessment centers; * examines performance appraisals and multisource (360 degree) feedback ratings; * addresses leadership cognitions, identifying training needs, coaching, and managing problem employees; and * includes chapters on cultural sensitivity, negotiations, group dynamics, and virtual teams.
