This book, first published in 1982, aims to re-examine the phenomenon of job redesign in a series of different but related contexts by including accounts, often using case study material, from people trained in a range of social science disciplines utilising different frames of reference. Thus job redesign is considered in relation to social policy, payment systems, collecting bargaining arrangements and trade unions, new technology, the process of change, organisational structures and functions, information and control systems, and the whole issue of emancipation at work. This title will be of interest to students of business studies and human resource management.
