Today’s best workers are demanding more before signing on--and requiring more to stay. How does a company find and hang on to great talent? Competition for skilled employees is fierce! This book provides comprehensive, practical advice to employers to get and keep the people they need. It covers such vital topics as what workers want--including a sense of making a real impact in their jobs and getting learning opportunities; why workers leave--sometimes just because they can (it’s so easy to find a new job), often because they feel undervalued or bored where they are; and what best-practice companies are doing to attract and retain the talent necessary to remain competitive. Expert Diane Arthur discusses: * Both traditional and new strategies, including a huge array of special incentives and perks * Online recruiting via sites like Monster.com or a company’s own Web site * Successful programs from Cisco Systems, Bank of Boston, Eli Lilly, McDonald’s, and dozens of other companies, including many small firms * Competency-based recruiting and interviewing, contingent workers, telecommuting and other alternative work arrangements, future trends, and more.

The Oxford Handbook of Organizational Climate and Culture

  • ISBN: 9780199860715
  • Release Date: 2014
  • Number of pages: 730
  • Author: Benjamin Schneider
  • Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA



The Oxford Handbook of Organizational Climate and Culture presents the breadth of topics from Industrial and Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior through the lenses of organizational climate and culture. The Handbook reveals in great detail how in both research and practice climate and culture reciprocally influence each other. The details reveal the many practices that organizations use to acquire, develop, manage, motivate, lead, and treat employees both at home and in the multinational settings that characterize contemporary organizations. Chapter authors are both expert in their fields of research and also represent current climate and culture practice in five national and international companies (3M, McDonald's, the Mayo Clinic, PepsiCo and Tata). In addition, new approaches to the collection and analysis of climate and culture data are presented as well as new thinking about organizational change from an integrated climate and culture paradigm. No other compendium integrates climate and culture thinking like this Handbook does and no other compendium presents both an up-to-date review of the theory and research on the many facets of climate and culture as well as contemporary practice. The Handbook takes a climate and culture vantage point on micro approaches to human issues at work (recruitment and hiring, training and performance management, motivation and fairness) as well as organizational processes (teams, leadership, careers, communication), and it also explicates the fact that these are lodged within firms that function in larger national and international contexts.
