Organisational Psychology - PSY338

This unit introduces students to psychological perspectives of the world of work, including both individual and organisational aspects. We cover such topics such as personnel selection, job attitudes, stress, personality, and human factors at work. Students discover some of the ways organisational psychologists have used the science of psychology to learn more about the human condition and to assist in the effective management of businesses. This unit provides a valuable background for the application of scientific principles and findings to workplace policies and practices that involve people. Through tutorial exercises and discussions, the unit ensures that students gain an appreciation of job analysis; recruitment and selection techniques; occupational stress management; and other psychological issues in the workplace.
