About the book: Help students better understand their behavioural and interpersonal skills and prepare them for the realities of the modern workplace.

Long considered the standard for all organisational behaviour textbooks, Organisational Behaviour provides the research you want, in the language your students understand. This text continues its tradition of making current, relevant research come alive for readers.

There’s a reason why Robbins’s textbooks have educated millions of students and have been translated into twenty languages—and it’s because of a commitment that provides the kind of engaging, cutting-edge material that helps students understand and connect with organisational behaviour.

In the dynamic, fast-paced and diverse 21st century workplace, managers and their employees are facing more challenges than ever before. In turn, educators must help to prepare their students for the reality of work and this text will support them to achieve this goal. This ninth edition is one of the most contemporary revisions of Organisational Behaviour undertaken. While the book’s trademark features have been retained - clear writing style, solid theoretical underpinnings, cutting-edge content and engaging pedagogy - each chapter has been thoroughly updated to reflect the most recent research within the field of organisational behaviour and the major practical issues facing employees and managers in the contemporary workplace.

Employability/career readiness:

Employability skills matrix chapter opener, anchoring meaning and relevance. Approx 80% new cases with global examples that both local and international students can relate to providing a real world/industry context. As a pedagogical focus, this content can easily be integrated into course assessment to assist lecturers.
