Perspectives on Job Enrichment and Productivity.
Suojanen, Waino W., Ed.; And Others
The book of reading focuses on the state of job enrichment in the United States today, as well as some of its international implications. Featured in the book are 20 selected working papers analyzing the development and use of job enrichment in various types of organizations, union response to job enrichment, and its outlook for the future. The volume approaches job enrichment on two levels: (1) theory, definition, and needs and (2) practice and application. Articles favoring job enrichment as well as some which take a more critical viewpoint are included. Viewing management as the psychology of business more than the physiology of business, the editors have collected readings that address the broader spectrum of those intrinsic work values known as the "quality of work life". The authors of articles come to grips with the factors which most directly affect this very sensitive area of management their observations, experiments, analyses, and solutions provide a framework for practical application of the dynamics of job enrichment through the most advanced concepts and systems known today.
