Ethics and Values in Industrial-Organizational Psychology was one of the first books to integrate work from moral philosophy, moral psychology, I-O psychology, and political and social economy, as well as business. It incorporates these perspectives into a "framework for taking moral action" and presents a practical model for ethical decision making. The second edition has added a chapter on Virtue Theory, including its application in I-O, Organizational behavior (OB) and business; expands Moral Psychology to two chapters, with more attention to moral emotions, effects of the "dark side" of personality, and the intuitionist model of moral judgment; expands the sections on social and economic justice; and expands the treatment of the Responsible Conduct of Research with a new chapter on Research Integrity. Examples from I-O research and practice, as well as current business events, are offered throughout. It is ideal for ethics and I-O courses at the graduate level.
'At last, a second edition of this seminal volume! This book articulates the ethics and values that drew many of us into Industrial and Organizational Psychology in the first place—our professional Turangawaewae, a ground on which to stand. We need to stand that ground more than ever today, and this book articulates why. Its vistas are prospective, and expansive: Social and economic justice, socially responsive and responsible research, workplace dignity, combating working poverty, societally integrating refugees by respecting socio-economic, -political and -cultural justice, spiritual values and religious faith; the over-arching UN Sustainable Development Goals. From minimum to living wages, servants of power to empowerment, CSR and Humanitarian work psychology, this is a book for the 21st century: for the future of decent work in a sustainable society.' – Stuart C. Carr, Ph.D., FRSNZ, End Poverty & Inequality Cluster (EPIC), Massey University, New Zealand
'The second edition of Joel Lefkowitz’s wonderful book frames business practices in a moral perspective—an important consideration for modern economies. It is clearly written, expertly sourced, and responsibly frames business issues in terms of the key issues from classic ethical theory.' – Robert Hogan, Ph.D., President, Hogan Assessment Systems, USA
