Description:

Relationships in the workplace are particularly important and consequential interpersonal relationships. An individual in a typical (40+ hours per week) job is likely to spend as much, if not more, of his or her time interacting with coworkers than with friends and family. Workplace relationships are not, however, simply personal relationships in a workplace setting. While workplace and non-workplace personal relationships share many similarities, they also differ in fundamental ways. The relationships individuals have with others at work play an important role in organizational processes. At the same time, the workplace context exerts unique influences on relationship processes and dynamics. As information-sharing, resource-distributing, decision making, and support systems, workplace relationships are essential for both organizational and individual well-being.Organizing Relationships: Traditional and Emerging Perspectives on Workplace Relationships provides the first comprehensive interdisciplinary examination of workplace relationship research, providing readers with a state-of-the-art understanding of workplace relationships. The book illustrates the ways students and scholars can, and should, understand and examine workplace relationships from multiple theoretical perspectives (including post-positivism, social construction theory, critical theory and structuration theory). This exploration helps readers broaden and enrich the ways they think about workplace relationships and their role in organizational processes.
