"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."

"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."
