Image of book coverIn Social Networks at Work, industry leading experts provide the latest thinking on social networks as applied to industrial and organizational (I-O) psychology. The chapters in this volume are organized into two groups. The first seven apply specific network concepts to a variety of topics. The remaining eight examine common I-O topics from a network perspective.

Each chapter provides an in-depth review along with discussions of future research and managerial implications of the social network perspective. Each topic area provides a useful review and guide for future research, as well as implications for managerial action.

Altogether, the volume published in December 2019 illustrates the importance of adding a social capital perspective to the traditional human capital focus of I-O psychology. Practicing managers, along with students and academics interested in applying a social network perspective to their work, will find this book a good addition to their libraries.
