MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book promises to direct I-O psychology down a new path-one that has historically been ignored by our profession but that will make our field even more relevant and visible to society at large. By assembling a broad-and impressive-team of thought leaders, Olson-Buchanan, Koppes Bryan, and Foster Thompson have set the stage for new and meaningful applications of the psychology of work."

-Donald M. Truxillo, Psychology Department, Portland State University

"This book really does explore new frontiers for I-O psychology. The book maps amazing areas where I-O psychology faces challenges and can make important contributions in three important regions: the societal well-being in the corporate domain, the nonprofit domain, and the nontraditional domains of humanitarian work psychology. In each chapter new avenues are offered that benefit from the knowledge available in our discipline while stimulating new research and innovative practice in those specific contexts. It is important to note that with the discovery of these new territories the face of our discipline is being changed and enriched with new approaches, contents, methods, and tools for analysis and interventions. The chapters are outstanding sources to inspire innovative teaching, professional practice, and research of I-O psychology. I cordially invite you to read it and discover new ways I-O psychology can serve humanity."

-Jose Maria Peiro, Universitat de Valencia, Valencia, Spain

"A dream team of scholars and practitioners have come together to provide a truly special resource. Never before have we seen issues of ethics, CSR, sustainability, diversity, inclusion, and humanitarian work discussed together in an evidence-based way. The field of Industrial-Organizational Psychology has a vast wealth of knowledge to offer the creation of positive societal change. This book tells that story."

-Deborah E. Rupp, Department of Psychological Sciences, Purdue University

"The editors assembled a world class team of experts who provide a comprehensive and insightful discussion on I-O psychology's prosocial role in organizations. This book is the direction that I-O psychology needs to be going!!"

-Ann Hergatt Huffman, Department of Psychology and College of Business, Northern Arizona University
