Psychology in Practice is the definitive six-part series on the practical applications of psychology to areas of everyday life, covering crime, education, health, sport, organisations and the environment. Each book in the series examines one unit of the Applications of Psychology section of the OCR syllabus.

Psychology in Practice: Organisations covers the application of psychology to the world of work. Over the years psychologists in the field have explored the following questions: What motivates people at work? How can employers use psychological findings to select appropriate applicants, and how can they organise and reward their workforce? What forms of leadership are most effective, and what are the important factors in teamwork? Overall, how can we improve the quality of people's working lives, avoid the dangers of stress and ensure that work keeps us safe and healthy?

Key learning aids include:

 a set of key terms for each chapter

 practical exercises

 section summaries and overall main chapter points

 recommended further reading and web sites

 sample examination questions based on OCR specimen materials.
